Workspaces in the green

Munich has a lot of green space, especially in Schwabing - Freimann. A large natural green space with abundant old and healthy trees is located on a section of Heidemannstrasse between Maria-Probst-Strasse and Lilienthalallee near Munich's industrial park. At the lightest point of this green lung, we envisioned a sustainable, environmentally friendly architecture with a compact structure and a prominent cantilever that accommodates a spacious conference area. With this design, as much of the green space's tree population as possible can be preserved. The architecture is to be used commercially for office structures and working environments.

Inside and Outside

To ensure that the forest-like tree population can also manifest itself as intensively as possible inside, the wall surfaces are extensively glazed. This gives the user a constant visual reference to the surrounding nature. The facade of the building is restrained and simple. In this way, we create a healthy working environment for the users: the preservation of the near-natural green space ensures clean air and is also a water reservoir and thus cooling, which is a big plus especially in the hot summer months. With these ecosystem services provided by the green space itself, the Heidemannstraße project also becomes a sustainable future quarter in the middle of Schwabing-Freimann.

Natural building materials

Natural building materials shape the character of the building. Inside and out, wood is the dominant material. Built as wood hybrid construction made of light beech wood, wood-shuttered cast-in-place concrete as the load-bearing core area and a wood-concrete composite ceiling, the building is so CO2-neutral as possible. The floors are alternately finished with wooden parquet or polished screed. What applies to the interior, the use of wood and thus the use of natural materials, also applies to the facade design. This is clad with dark grey glazed spruce boards, which have a slight metallic sheen due to aluminium pigments.
