Energetic renovation Botanical Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin

For over 100 years, the listed Great Tropical House has been the landmark of the Botanical Garden. Built between 1905 and 1907 according to plans by the Royal Building Council Alfred Koerner (1849 - 1926), the 26-metre-high dome is still one of the most impressive and largest self-supporting greenhouses in the world and today houses more than 1,400 plant species. In order to offer the tropical plants optimum conditions, temperatures of at least 22 degrees were and are necessary. At the level of the 60s, the tropical house was last a real "energy slingshot" and was therefore completely renovated between 2006 and 2009. The set goal: A reduction of the energy consumption by min. 50 %. After successful completion of the refurbishment, we can now report primary energy savings of as much as 70 %! The Victoria House was also renovated between 2013 and 2017 and now requires less than 50% of its previous energy requirements.
