The building is to be erected on the former Siemens site at 76 Richard-Strauss-Straße. The proposal prevailed against eleven other submissions, with the jury impressed by the clear formal language and the highly flexible floor plans. The urban planning and use of landscape to integrate the building into its surroundings were also crucial factors for the decision.

The winning design scheme features a sculptural ensemble made up of three large volumes. A tall tower on Richard-Strauss-Straße is complemented by a connecting building wing and a lower tower.

While the tower situated on the street provides a counterpart to the existing high-rise buildings, the open ground floor of the ensemble creates a flowing transition to the adjacent park. The delicate structure remains visible through the building’s fully glazed façade, creating an intriguing sense of depth.
