Siemens’ Sustainable Space


A new HQ for German technology brand Siemens will be built using energy-efficient technologies and innovations developed by Siemens itself. It’s designed by Copenhagen based Henning Larsen Architects, which won a competition set by Siemens.

Offices will be split into a series of sections linked by a labyrinth of integrated courtyards and passageways where employees can take breaks, hold meetings and socialise.

The courtyard aspect of the structure is designed to reflect the wider urban landscape, mirroring nearby plazas and historic buildings (it will also bridge the gap between Munich’s historic and cultural districts, knitting the headquarters into the fabric of the city), but the overall look is set to be intensely futuristic.
