VELUX Germany Opens Germany's First CO2-Neutral Renovated House

Germany's first carbon-neutral renovated single-family homeLichtAktiv Haus is placed in the Wilhelmsburg district of Hamburg. After a five-month construction phase, the transformation is complete and this 50-year-old traditional semi-detached house has been fully modernised and expanded to include a light and generously-proportioned extension. The innovative modernisation strategy combines maximum liveability with optimum energy efficiency. LichtAktiv Haus is the fourth of six Model Home 2020 experiments in Europe launched by the VELUX Group as part of our strategy to take an active part in developing sustainable buildings for the future. It is the VELUX vision of how future buildings can be both climate-neutral, comfortable and attractive places to live in because of daylight and fresh air.
