copenhagen based practice henning larsen architects has won the competition to redesign seimens’ corporate headquarters in munich, germany. the building, which is set to break ground in the fall of 2012, will lay the basis for a complete restructuring of the electronics and electrical engineering company’s offices in the city center. selected for its comprehensive approach to sustainability, the corporate hub will feature a number of innovations and energy-efficient building technologies developed by siemens, including photovoltaic systems and sustainable lighting options.

a collection of intersecting wings compose the overall headquarters, its angular and contoured volumes generating a series of enclosed courtyards. governed by the surrounding historical landscape and built environment, the structure seeks to integrate itself into the context of its neighborhood, preserving plazas and a nearby 19th century building designed by leo von klenze. accessible to the general public via pedestrian passageways and vibrant courtyards, the campus will link the city’s historic center with its museum quarter.  cultural offerings, cafes and bistros hosted on the ground floor will further bridge the gap between the two districts.

  • This is beautiful.
    The Siemens headquarters in Johannesburg is also beautiful but has much more character and individuality (and its more than 10years old)
