Students Unveil Solar-Powered Rooftop House for an Apartment Block in Berlin

The owners of the Altbau will invest to refurbish the rooftop and possibly replace old electrical appliances, fix windows and the façade and renew the heating system. The modular addition can be transported in its entirety and simply be put on top of the base house in one piece.
