How were brick-lined, well-built structures built


An example in which quality, sustainability, costs and speed have all led to a successful result are the three two-story buildings with 20 residential units in a state-owned residential complex in Straubing. In just seven months of construction and with construction costs of only around 2.1 million euros, they were built from prefabricated brick wall components - so-called Redbloc brick elements - with highly heat-insulating bricks. The brickwork of the new Schönbrunn fire station by Neumeister + Paringer Architekten from Landshut is solid, plain and plastered in white; On the other hand, the facade of the institute building 0505 of the Technical University of Munich, which Hild und K Architects chose for this one of the existing buildings, is titanium gray and bricked up (see objects on the subject).

Each building is presented with extensive images and plans. A construction board with the most important facts provides information about the planners involved in the construction.
