Frankfurt am Main
The planned new building complements the existing ensemble with a sustainable new building, which strengthens the campus character of the VDMA and realises the space requirements of the association. The architectural figure of the interlocking cubes creates a corridor, which intuitively guides visitors from Lyoner Strasse into the adjoining two-story foyer. A spacious staircase leads guests from here into the conference areas on the ground floor and first floor. Due to the different height of the two cubes, a differentiated building with a roof terrace is createet, which is oriented towards the existing building. The new has a narrow side facing to the street and a broad side flanking the green area to the neighbouring existing building. In the standard floors, two 400m² staggered utilisation units are connected to a central core, which opens up the floors efficiently.
