On the former site of the Berlin Chemie works, on the edge of the Johannisthal landscape park, HOWOGE Wohnungsbaugesellschaft mbh created a neighbourhood with 314 apartments, retail areas, a large daycare centre for children, playgrounds and green spaces, plus a garage with 123 parking spaces. Seven of the 20 detached houses were built using the timber hybrid construction method.

Ulrich Schiller, HOWOGE managing director, stated: “We have implemented one of our most ambitious construction projects yet with the Johannisgärten. From the building materials used and the tenants’ electricity supply, from the mobility concept to the rainwater management, this neighbourhood makes a decisive contribution to achieving the climate goals set by the state of Berlin”. The apartments themselves contain state-of-the-art air conditioning technology to provide heating and hot water. Planning of the complex was awarded to Thoma Architekten of Berlin.
