undjurekbrüggen is an architectural practice that considers architecture as an immanent part of a common Earth shared with all people, animals, plants and things. Instead of placing individual, human objects in a natural world in crisis, undjurekbrüggen intends to connect the world you live in and the world you live from in one space.

With the aim of not only protecting the Earth, but also caring for it and actively shaping it in a positive way, undjurekbrüggen initiates ecological projects in cooperation with other actors.

These projects can have different formats (building, furniture, text, film, campaign, neighbourhood or landscape), but always deal with the existing in terms of building, ecology, economy, politics, climate and comfort.  




_undjurekbrüggen is co-founding member of the architecture collective OFEA Office for Ecological Architecture

The Verwalterinnenhaus is the best-preserved building in the ensemble Komturei Werben. It is to be sensitively and ecologically restored in keeping with its status as a listed building. The supporting structure of the building, which has been weakened by destruction, will be restored and the ground level will be excavated to the height it was at the time of construction. It is planned to convert the attic to create a total of six guest apartments.

Elements from the building period, such as individual windows that still exist, are restored and reinstalled. Newly added parts that are not from the building period, such as the dormers on the roof or the balconies on the tower, are clearly differentiated as abstract volumes in a contemporary design. Materials that still exist, such as the wooden floorboards or roof tiles, will be reused. For the remaining construction measures, it is planned to use ecological materials such as loam and lime plasters, lime screed and wood fibre insulation.

Unheated and green transition spaces im Gebäude mediate between inside and outside. The green surroundings become part of the house in various areas. The roof of the later added porch is removed and the volume without the roof is used as an open patio. As a result, visitors enter the house through a protected outdoor space before they enter the actual interior of the building. The sun-flooded, south-western room of the mezzanine is both part of the flat and part of the landscape as a green garden room without insulating windows. A building botanical balcony on the west side of the building grows up as a support structure in the form of appropriately planted trees and will support the balcony in the future. The destroyed ornaments and pinnacles will be rebuilt for birds and bats in the construction-period volume but with numerous nesting and brood boxes. Vines will be enabled to grow up the façade.

In the sustainability rating recognised by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), the building receives a score of 72 (very good).
