The concept of the facade design is based on thoughts concerning “proportionality”, “ambivalence”, and “identity”. A homogeneous, encasing “dress” gives the building a unified material language. The building receives a new proportionality through the structure of the facade due to the alternating tilted, perforated panels. This creates a link to the old Giesinger train station and gives it an upgrade in its appearance. Due to the continuous glass facade on the ground floor, a base area emerges as a horizontal break, lending the building a floating character. In cooperation with Stadler + Wild.
