Two German Brand Award honours for BUWOG


BUWOG wins the German Brand Award for the third time. In this year’s presentation in Frankfurt am Main, BUWOG Bauträger GmbH won the award in two competitive classes.

BUWOG has won the German Brand Award twice this time – as winner in the category “Building & Elements” and in the area of sustainability as “Sustainable Brand of the Year”. The German Brand Award is presented by a jury led by the German Design Council. This year, the award winners were celebrated with an exclusive stage show above the rooftops of Frankfurt.

Daniel Riedl, member of the management board of Vonovia SE responsible for BUWOG operations in Austria and for BUWOG Development in Germany:

“The BUWOG brand represents a clear promise: happy living. To this end, we integrate a considerable level of architectural diversity in our neighbourhood developments throughout Germany, and we’re extremely delighted about receiving this year's award for “Excellent Brand – Building & Elements”. We also incorporate extensive sustainable qualities into our housing, with a consistent focus on ecological, social and economic sustainability over the entire life cycle of our residential properties. The Sustainable Brand of the Year award confirms that we are on the right track and demonstrates the extraordinary commitment of our entire team.”

BUWOG is one of the largest private project developers for residential property. Specialising in large-scale neighbourhood development, BUWOG currently has around 15,000 apartments under construction or in planning, distributed across the key regions of Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig and Rhine-Main. BUWOG's largest neighbourhood is currently located in Berlin-Grünau: here in the 52° Nord district, in the first construction phase, a 6,000 sqm water basin was built, in which rainwater from the surrounding buildings is collected and biologically purified through lateral vegetation. Through evaporation, the rainwater can return to the natural water cycle while simultaneously improving the microclimate.

In 2020, BUWOG won the ICONIC Award for Innovative Architecture (2020) as well as the German Housing Award (2020), presented by the Federal Foundation for Baukultur and others. The German Brand Award is one of the most important international awards for achievements in the areas of product, design and communication. Initiated by the German Bundestag in 1953, the German Design Council helps strengthen design as an economic factor.


BUWOG now looks back on 70 years of expertise in the residential property business. In Germany, BUWOG Bauträger GmbH is currently focused on Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig and the Rhine-Main region in the area of property development and has a development pipeline of around 15,000 residential units. BUWOG is a subsidiary of Vonovia SE, Europe’s leading residential company, which is located in Bochum (Germany). BUWOG harmonises its new construction activity with ecological, economic and social sustainability. On the basis of this, the company pursues ambitious climate protection targets and has an energy management system in accordance with ISO 50001.
