Hamburg participated at the Expo 2010 in Shanghai by building the first certified passive house in China.
As twin town of Shanghai, Hamburg was the only German city with its own single building project.

The project was developed by Kontrapunkt (Hamburg), in cooperation with the agency Design Factory International.

The Hamburg House was located at the Urban Best Practices Area at the Expo in which several projects from all over the world were shown. With the energy-saving house, Hamburg presented itself as an innovative metropolis on the water and a great place to live.

In the four-storey building, visitors found an exciting exhibition, showing sustainable urban development and ecological, climate-friendly constructions from Hamburg.

Holtmann was responsible for building the exhibition.
