CLAYTEC clay building materials are used for public buildings to give them a special character. Our portfolio includes museums, congress buildings, and sanatoriums. Since the beginning, spaces used for religious purposes have been a particular focus. You will find impressive new buildings, lovingly rehabilitated half-timbered farmsteads, or fascinating spaces made of rammed clay. Each of these examples is something special, every one unique. And you can visit all of them!
The Essen-based start-up "Future2K" (F2K) has taken up this challenge and since 2021 has been developing new forms and processes for an environment that can be built in a sustainable and resource-saving way. The basis for this is a cycle-based building system. Together with development partners Arup, the Institute for Digitalization of Construction at the University of Duisburg Essen, and other research and production partners from Germany and Europe, F2K has developed an initial prototype. This prototype is the basic building block of a modular system called "ADPT". This is an adaptive, cycle-based, scalable and climate-positive building.
Already in the planning phase of the new office space, the focus was therefore on avoiding construction waste. During the renovation, ecological clay building materials from CLAYTEC were also used, which can also be assigned to the principle of the Cradle to Cradle circular economy.
Christoph and Beate Leiders run the Stautenhof in Willich-Anrath near Düsseldorf together with their daughter Theresa. Since 1997, they have been successfully running the farm according to Naturland and Bioland guidelines. For generations, the motto "organic" has been writ large on the farm, so the Stautenhof is also a member of the Naturlandverband and Biolandverband.
The South Korean CLAYTEC skilled trades partner ARCHITERRE used blueprints drafted by the Seoul-based design studio U.LAB for the wall design of the Wellness Center in the district of Hannam-Dong in Seoul.
One particularly beautiful project is the seminar building EcoLut-Forum in Engelskirchen near Cologne. The name is based on the Latin word for clay (lut) and embodies both ecological and economic thinking.
Directly next to the historic listed parish church St. Gereon in the modest town of Kreuzau-Boich on the edge of the Eifel National Park is a timberframe building from c. 1728, presumably a residential and farm compound with stables at the time.
Headquarters of the Institute for Building Biology + Sustainability (IBN) in Rosenheim. An existing one-story, curved-circular building in solid construction (former grocery store "Konsum", built in 1955) was extensively renovated and supplemented by an upper floor in wood construction and a glazed staircase.
One particularly impressive reference project is the historical Fort Al Jahili in the oasis Al Ain in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, which was ceremoniously inaugurated on 3 December 2008.
The "Room of Silence" meditation room is part of the new cultural centre of the catholic parish St. Johann Baptist in Bergisch Gladbach-Refrath.
Johannes Hünert, technical director in the St. Elisabeth and St. Barbara hospital in Halle was searching for an appealing design for the main thoroughfare. At the same time, a solution was also needed for the occasional occurrence of unpleasant mixed odours due to the unfavourable ventilation situation in this area.
The RoSana building is located in the centre of Rosenheim, in the middle of a river, and right on the pulse of life. In a historical brick building, doctors and non-medical practitioners utilise natural methods to put their patients back on the path towards vitality and strength.
