Alessandro Siragusa from the Italian ETICS association Cortexa and EAE board member for marketing affairs explained the objectives of the competition: “With this award, we are awarding energy-efficient, technically innovative, sustainable and aesthetically sophisticated façade solutions that showcase what is possible when using External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems.” More than 50 projects from ten European countries were submitted. The five-member independent jury select-ed the winners out of four categories (new single-family homes, new multi-family homes, residential refurbishment, non-residential buildings). They also honored some projects with special mentions.

New construction of in total 520 student flats, build on a brown field (former warehouse and industrial buildings). Brick slips have been used as final layer to adapt to traditional building design, showcasing the variety of design options ETICS offer.
Winner: Villenkolonie Westend, Berlin (Germany)

The ETICS with slim panel thickness but high insulation properties improved the energy-efficiency whilst optimizing the partially damaged façade of the complex, which dates back to 2000.
Special Mention: Viale Gran San Bernardo, Aosta (Italy)

At the building form 1935 historic details have been handled carefully. Replication technologies were used to preserve the original appearance of the façade, e.g. the brick structure of the ground floor.
Special Mention: Goethehof, Vienna (Austria)
The project solved the challenge of both restoring and expanding a listed building from 1929. Whilst adding 129 roof-top flats, improving the energy-efficiency and reducing barriers, the historical elements of the building blocks were preserved without destroying cultural heritage.
Winner: Maison de la Culture de la Province, Namur (Belgium)

Outstanding setting the scene of the complex comprising modern and historical elements using ETICS, heat pumps and solar energy.
