Customers Choice Award

The HUF Musterhaus Mannheim was extremely popular with readers and took second place in the readers' house poll for the "Großer Deutschen Fertighauspreis 2018".

Architectural Design Award

The jury's reasoning for the 2nd place of the "Großer Deutschen Fertighauspreis 2018" in the category Architectural Design:

The model house Mannheim by HUF HAUS has an elegant as well as functional design language reminiscent of models of classical modernism. The high proportion of glazing ensures modern openness and a generous sense of space.

Smart design award

The HUF Show house in Mannheim also convinced the jury of the "Großer Deutscher Fertighauspreis 2018" in the area of Smart Design. The KNX system is a good basis with sensible expansion options for the user. The company continues to combine many KNX-compatible products from different manufacturers.
