This office building on Lindberghstrasse is located in Munichh’s newly-developed “Am Freimanner Hölzl” commercial zone. The intention was to design a building that would not only accommodate its future users’ functional requirements and their need for flexibility but also fit in with the heterogeneous urban fabric of the commercial area in which it was to be built.
What emerged was a clearly-delineated building cube whose entrance side – its “head” – faces Lindberghstrasse to the south, from where it appears virtually to float as it extends into the “landscape”.
A multilayered façade, with its brusque, industrial character, strikes a balance between separation and individual openness.
Completion: March 2002
