This project is a proposal for a sustainable microbrewery, which is located in Agger, the North Jutland region of Denmark. It aims for a better understanding of a specific field called brewery architecture, which connects interdisciplinary subject areas like food industry & engineering, brewing technology & chemistry, and hospitality architecture. In order to achieve a holistic and coherent solution, the integrated design method is applied. The design implements the three pillars of sustainability with an individual focus on each aspect. The environmental impact of the building is optimized by reaching low energy building standards with utilizing the local climate conditions for both passive strategies and renewable energy resources. Economic sustainability is catered by considering the life cycle of used materials. The project has a strong social focus regarding the importance of different user groups and their emotional belonging to the location. Moreover, the design intends to facilitate a social transformation in the local community by providing a welcoming environment with high-quality architecture.
