Preserving creation is everyday living practice to the Benedictine monks of Plankstetten Abbey. Their monastery, located on a site between the cities of Ingolstadt, Regensburg and Nuremberg, serves as a place of education and the property belonging to the abbey is used for organic agriculture. The monks placed high demands also on the expansion to their  monastery: It was intended to meet passive house standards by using renewable materials as far as possible, non-hazardous in terms of building ecology and biology.
