Siemens Headquarters in Munich

Commercial

8/40

 
 
 
 
 

The development of Siemens’ new global headquarters has focused on creating a modern work environment for Siemens' employees, while at the same time letting the organization give something back to the city in the form of a vibrant urban space, accessible to everyone.

The headquarter is placed in the heart of Munich. The ground floor – which includes green inner courtyards, a café, a restaurant and a fountain – is publicly accessible. This passage provides the citizens of Munich and visitors to the Bavarian capital with a new footpath between downtown Munich and the city’s museum district.

The building is composed of a volume where four rectangular, rounded courtyards are cutout. Inside the building, a central vertical structure – the ‘spine’ - connects the entire complex. The heart of the building, a roofed courtyard, is situated in the middle of the building and accessible from all sides.

State-of-the-art energy and climate technologies produced by Siemens are incorporated into the design and the building thus also serves to demonstrate the organization’s product portfolio.

Siemens' new headquarters stands out as a spearhead project in sustainable design in an urban context. The objective of the project was to exceed today's standards for green building such as DGNB Gold and LEED Platinum. State-of-the-art technologies produced by Siemens are incorporated into the building to ensure an optimal lifelong performance.

The design is energy efficient in itself. The organisation of the office spaces, the slightly sloping facades providing the building with ample daylight and the selection of healthy, sustainable materials demonstrate that an open, healthy working environment is of high priority to Siemens.
