UNStudio's design for the Baumkirchen Mitte selected

UNStudio's design for the Baumkirchen Mitte in Munich has been selected as the winning entry from a shortlist of six finalists . UNStudio worked in collaboration with OR else Landscapes on the design for the 18,500m² residential and office complex located in the east of Munich. With its 60 metre high tower the project will become the focal point for the entrance to the new Baumkirchen Mitte development.

Ben van Berkel: “In the design for the facade of the building we chose for an articulated sobriety, incorporating contrasting scales of detail. The horizontal bands which wrap and organise the building present a sober articulation from a distance, however as you get closer to the building you discover a refined scale of intricate, complex detailing.”
