Located in the former industrial and commercial Werksviertel district of Munich, the façades of the three iCampus buildings establish the introduction of new programmatic elements dedicated to the creative industry. A deep frame of load-bearing concrete elements communicates the internal dynamics of the office outwards and allows the workspaces to be organized beyond German office design conventions. The entrances and stairways are wrapped together with the technical spaces in a black metallic cladding which forms utilitarian elements that integrate the roof with the rest of the façade.
The atrium, acting as a binding element between the different floors, integrates triangular glass openings that prevent overheating, and extends towards the entrance, further establishing a spatial relation between the interior of the building and the external public space.
