Elementum Postbank Karree, Munich, Germany

Elementum Postbank Karree

Not far from Munich Central Station, Herzog & de Meuron are transforming the former Postbank square into an energy-efficient complex. The complex from the 1990th will not be demolished completely, since the body framing is still in good condition and should mostly be preserved. The building will form a coherent ring with subdivisible office spaces and, with new facades, and will act as a centre of attraction for mixed use in the inner city. The courtyard will be transformed into a green garden acting as a purifying element; filtering the air in a natural way.
Transsolar is developing up-to-date concepts for energy and ventilation and is taking care to ensure a good supply of daylight so that the retail and commercial areas achieve the desired high quality with the best possible energy efficient solutions. According to current plans, the new square will be completed in 2024.
