A look into the future

The “Parkside” residential complex in Freudenstadt is innovative for several reasons. One of these is the sanitation technology from Geberit.

The “Parkside” construction project in Freudenstadt is pioneering in multiple ways: First, it sets an example against the urban sprawl encroaching on the landscape. The two buildings each house seven homes of between 150 and 180 square meters, each of which succeeds in offering a satisfactory alternative to a detached family home. This saves construction land equating to one complete street – land that thus remains preserved for nature. Second, all the newly created homes and access to them is barrier-free and wheelchair-accessible. As such, “Parkside” takes account of the needs of an increasingly aging population and enables its residents to stay in their homes as they get older, meaning they don’t have to move into a specially equipped care home. Third, both buildings have been designed as low-energy structures made with natural construction materials. Solar energy is utilized, as is ventilation with heat recovery. Fourth, state-of-the-art components have been incorporated into the interiors. These include the Geberit installation system “GIS” as well as the Geberit wall drain for the shower, the “Geberit AquaClean Mera Comfort” shower toilet, and the touchless “Geberit Sigma80” flush plate.

The “GIS” screen wall system can incorporate pipes and functional elements and thus helps to create a high-end bathroom atmosphere that appears neat and tidy. In the bathrooms at “Parkside,” this system accommodates not only inflow and outflow, but also lighting and a sound system. In the shower, the wall drain is integrated into the screen wall, enabling the floor to be tiled smoothly without obstacles or changes in level. Instead of the bidet initially planned, the innovative “Geberit Aqua Clean Mera Comfort” shower toilet has been incorporated into the homes,offering numerous convenience functions such as remote control, odor extraction, a heated seat, user recognition, and automated opening and closing of the toilet lid. The first-rate technical bathroom fittings are completed by the “Sigma80” flush plate, which triggers the flushing process touch-free. The technical fittings are hidden behind a smooth glass panel in the screen wall installation. (fap)
