HPC Helmholtz Pioneer Campus in Munich, ongoing

The Helmholtz Pioneer Campus is located about 10 km north of the city center of Munich. The site for the new building is part of the uniform rectangular layout of the campus but is characterized by its heterogeneous context. The HPC building is intended to fit in and yet set an accent for the newly emerging »Gaborplatz«.

Our design concept responds to these parameters by enhancing the western and southern edges of development with strong »green accentuation«, and by contrasting these new ‘green’ edges with a rhombus-shaped built volume that allows for open spaces within the grid pattern and gives expression to its special position. The transparent banded facades will receive textile solar shading that envelops the building like a curtain.
