More about this product

Siemens is the world's largest supplier of sustainable technology, with its global headquarters located in the heart of Munich. The ground floor is open to the public and acts as a connecting link to the city which strengthens the German company's historical ties to Munich. In reference to Siemens' dedication to providing environmentally conscious technologies, the building is designed with highly sustainable materials.

Design Concept

Siemens' HQ combines state-of-the-art architecture with advanced building technology. On the outside, the building includes various inner green courtyards which allow citizens and tourists to cross from Munich's historic city center into the museum quarter. With 1,200 employees, the building contains various offices and quiet zones that allow for a range of work, from small private meetings to large conferences, creating an overall collaborative work environment.

Sustainable Practices

The Siemens building complex is one of Europe's most sustainable headquarters. Compared to the previous structure, the Siemens HQ consumes 90% less energy and 75% less water. This is mainly due to innovative building systems which regulate temperatures, ventilation, and lighting to create a healthy and productive indoor climate. The sloping interior facades allow daylight to significantly enter the building and thus reduce the need for artificial lighting.

Limestone Panels Facade - Hofmann

To complement the HQ's sustainable design, Hofmann's limestone panels are used on the facade to create a modern aesthetic while providing numerous environmental benefits. With various selections and finishes, Hofmann's limestone gives designers customizable options. The stone can be used for facade application in any climatic condition, making it ideal for Munich's weather patterns. The limestone panels are suitable for interior and exterior settings, allowing for seamless transitions.
