With the Minimum Impact House (MIH) new strategies for the development of urban residual areas were developed. The choice of locations Has a positive effect on the environmental performance of the building. In terms of sustainability offers a densification within the city territory require a lot of advantages: The urban sprawl is prevented. This creates congestion and strengthens the social fabric in the cities. Moreover, the reduction of land consumption is an active contribution to the protection of resources.

In modern residential consumption is minimized during operation largely. Therefore, with a lifetime of 50 years, the construction of the building for a large proportion of C02 emissions. MIH when the design was the use of renewable raw materials - optimized - especially wood. By a supporting structure made of timber panel construction and a fire protection system, the MIH was one of the first modern five-storey wooden building erected werden.Um to reduce energy consumption during use, the building was built as a passive house. As an important part of a ventilation system was installed as a compact unit (heat pump) with a degree of recovery heat recovery of 85%. The balance of energy is needed by a solar thermal system and a heat pump covered with 100% certified green.

Social and ethical responsibility Building their own home is the dream of many people, especially families. Here a strategy i provided to create a new type of homes in the city and reinforcing the social, economic, and cultural fabric of the urban centres. In the fast-grown suburbs an unnatural homogenous population is created because on the very small group of people usually moves there within a short period of time. This segregation of a large proportion of the society weakens the social structure. In the city centre a social groups a mixed and interact. The individual experiences being part of a society every day. This understanding is the foundation for any social and democratic understanding. Ressource efficiency and environmental impact Residential houses are the main course for land-use. Building new suburbs leads to the destruction of natural environments, more streets, traffic, and pollution. One important aim was to demonstrate that in the smallest urban niche it is possible to built a fully-functioning house which meets the highest design standards and ecological criteria.

Affordable housing in the city while maintaining quality of life - a problem that employs the Frankfurt architect Hans Drexler for some years. His concern was not only a question of economic efficiency, but also about the environmental and social benefits of densification of urban areas. An idea that should be in the interests of urban planners. After all boasted Frankfurt as Germany's capital and passive house is striving towards the European title of a Green City. The award given by the city's architecture award "Green Building Award" to encourage private developers to sustainable designs. Hans Drexler received the award in 2009 for his mini-house. On a wedge-shaped area of 29 square meters, he set up at the Walter-Kolb-Strasse in Sachsenhausen, a multi-storey wooden building in passive house standard with a floor space of 145 square meters.

Research Project: a prototype for sustainable construction

The existing infrastructure, the social and cultural offerings and the short distances make it attractive to live in the middle of the city. The dream of owning a home, however, can often seem to realize just on the outskirts. Inner-city building sites are scarce on the market and offer often difficult conditions. But even in an area of ​​29 square meters can be a full house plan that shows the office Drexler Guinand Jauslin Architects in Frankfurt am Main with his mini house.

The amount of frame houses measured to the total market of one- and two-family houses has been increasing constantly. About 13.000 residential buildings were built in timber-panel -construction and prefabricated timber-construction in Germany in 2009, with tendency to rise. Because of the commercial and technological advantage of the modern timber-construction, there can be expected, that the positive trend will continue during the following years.

The "Minimum Impact House" is a prototype for sustainable and energy efficient housing in the city. The building is the product of a research project of the architectural firm Drexler Guinand Jauslin and the Department of Design and Energy Efficiency of the Department of Architecture of the TU Darmstadt by Manfred Hegger. "The gentle use of resources is a key aspect of sustainability. This is true in the use of urban remnant areas as well as in the choice of material and energy efficiency for he building." says owner and architect Hans Drexler. The benefits of existing urban infrastructure through a densification not only reduces urban sprawl of the surrounding area, it also reduces the volume of traffic and stabilizes the economic and social structure of the city.
