iCampus construction advances

On a recent visit to the construction site of iCampus in Munich's Werksviertel district, we have captured the progress on the three office buildings.

The facade works are nearly finished, with over 800 prefab concrete elements installed across the three buildings.

These modules are the largest prefab concrete elements KAAN Architecten has designed as of yet. Their size implies fewer structural joints and plays an essential role in making them not only cost-effective, but time-efficient. In this way, the crane moves faster and completes the mounting in less time.

Each building also features a central atrium as a binding element between the different floors. With a gridded glass roof acting as a lantern above the top floor, the atrium prevents heat accumulation and brings in abundant daylight.
