- Steel composite bridge structure with 45 m span on floors 8 & 9
- GFA: c. 28,000 m²
Time: 2008 - 2011
Building costs: c. 37 mill. EUR
- Our scope:
Little brother with its own personality.
In the southern wing of the building, storeys 2 to 7 are completely absent. Thus the 12 metre wide construction in the 8th and 9th storeys freely spans the space between two building cores like a bridge for a length of c. 40 metres.
The ingenious steel construction method dispenses with special structural elements on the south-facing facade and thus permits an unobstructed view to the south across the new Lohsepark.
The six-storey opening in the building’s southern wing gives the building its impressive uniqueness. This – alongside additional roof gardens on the second storey – provides for exciting view axes and completely new vistas of its surroundings.
