The ÖKO-Patchwork-Palace

The administration of the Neustadt public utility company in Schleswig-Holstein was built from old reused building components. The 1,600 square meter façade of the Eco-Patchwork Palace was made of old oak beams that came from farmhouses in Lower Saxony. The supplier of the sawn oak beams was the company Thomas Knapp Historische Baustoffe GmbH. The more than 100-year-old street lamp, which supports the foyer of the staircase inside the building, was also made by the building materials dealer Knapp, who in turn bought it from his dealer colleague Florian Langenbeck.

He tries to preserve the old and create something new from it, such as beautiful mirrors in a processed old wooden frame. Historical building materials - this is also sustainable, which earned him the Federal Environment Award.
