LBBW Immobilien - Headquarters - Stuttgart | LAVA
The LBBW headquarters is a forwardlooking component of the development of Stuttgart. The zero-energy office building combines high quality public domain life with a resource-optimised workplace.
The innovative office concept is based on the findings of the research project, Office 21 by the Fraunhofer Institute. The traditional, modular building block
differs in the proposal in favor of a centralized system. The building is divided both horizontally and vertically
and interconnected via an atrium - the central location and communications heart of the project.
The 41,000 square meter zero-energy office building is efficient in both its energy consumption and construction.
An adaptive façade system allows light control, shading and energy optimisation. The facade consists of circular discs with integrated photovoltaic elements. By moving these elements the appearance of the building changes during different times of day. The energy generating
facade moves seamlessly over the structure, articulated at the roof level as a sensuous fifth facade.
