  • The S-HOUSE needs ten times less energy and fossile/mineral resources than a traditional building by intelligent combination of passive house standard, insulation with straw as well as use of clay.
  • The Schiestlhaus is an alpine refuge (on 2154 m), that was established under extreme climatic conditions as a highly energy efficient passive house in island position.
  • The TV documentary "Renaissance of Clay" demonstrates advantages and modern use of clay as a building material that was nearly fallen into oblivion: available almost everywhere and unproblematic in disposal, clay regulates interior humidity and produces a better and healthier room climate.
