Entry Description

This building makes an important contribution to the future of a living & ecological city. It’s environmentally sustainable, friendly, open, unconventional.
A 4.5m deep sphere lays around the core like a shady shelf, it contains the necessary elements, open platforms serve as balcony zones.
The levels can be arranged completely free – a lively mix of functions (hotel, restaurant, retail area) is completed by the public rooftop accessible beyond shopping hours.
160 trees in the facade and on the roof influence the micro-climate, simulations indicate a temperature decrease of 1.5°C!
