Werner Sobek inaugurates Aktivhaus B10 in Stuttgart

On 8 July 2014 Werner Sobek inaugurated the new Aktivhaus B10 in Stuttgart’s famous historical monument, the Weissenhof Estate. Representatives from the German federal government and Baden-Württemberg’s state government as well as Stuttgart’s Mayor, Fritz Kuhn, lauded the innovative character of the project.

The research project named „B10“, abbreviated from the address Bruckmannweg 10, is the first active house anywhere in the world. Thanks to a sophisticated energy concept and a self-learning building control system the house generates twice as much energy as it actually requires itself. And that from sustainable sources.
