Description / Additional Information
Describe the key innovation and technology aspects of the project
Grosspeter Tower’s height and architecture makes it one of the city’s most striking buildings. Its shape comes from the concept of two interlocking volumes, which present themselves in a different form from every angle. The project provides mixed-use with offices and a hotel, according to the “core and shell” principle, a basic fit-out and a tenant fit-out. The very stringent quality requirements in the building’s overall concept also result in an excellent eco-efficient footprint. Photovoltaic urfaces are integrated into the facade and on the roof.
