Chamber of Physicians Lower Saxony, Hannover
Berliner Allee 20, 30175 Hannover
1st prize competition 2017, in progress
The new head office of the Chamber of Physicians Lower Saxony in Hannover combines the functions of an efficient office building for approximately 400 employees with a modern training centre at its traditional location. Two oppositely aligned inclinations grow upwards to ten-storeys at the site’s busy crossroads. A three-storey lobby in the centre of the house connects all common areas and re-enforces the open and communicative character of the house. The green roof areas provide a direct connection to nature at the workplace and contribute to the microclimatic improvement in urban space as well as to an ecologically sustainable building operation. – A place of urban vitality!
