Client: Oval Office Gesells. f. B. mbH
“Oval character” | New office building
The dominant solitary character of a basic form shapes the design, which will act as an urban gatehouse in the ensemble of City-Nord. As a prelude to a structural revitalization of the City of New North presents a contemporary but concise form, which thus forms an attractive location for future tenants. The broader the exterior through an oval ring 5-storey double-comb structure of the building reflects an economic, but also flexible office-use structure again, whilst offering by the expression of a seven-story central oval also opportunities for placing special uses. Overall, grouped around the seven separate landscaped courtyards around 26,000 sqm GFA, which can be accessed via the central generous approach area on Kapstadtring. An arranged offset in the floors, rhythmic post-and-beam façade emphasizes in its simple simplicity the dominant overall form of the building and creates clear job areas. In an underground garage 295 parking spaces are located.
