The basic urban development idea of this project was to carry out an architectonic reorganization of the surrounding buildings and area with the new building. The Biokatalyse is the urban centre of the technical university campus, and with its clear architectural shape, takes the function of a reorganizing intervention. This architectonic and urban design concept is supported and enhanced by the landscaping of the site. The openess of the entrance areas, in combination with the ground floor, highlights the functional and architectural cooperation with the existing chemistry and biochemistry buildings.

The southern facade is entirely glazed, screened by folding, external sunshading elements, while bands of fenestration give structure to the northern facade. The colour and structure of these folding elements, constructed of perforated aluminium, as a dynamic facade element symbolize the continual repositioning of current scientific research. The changeability and the colourfulness of these elements give the facade a playful nature which is constantly redefined. The colour on the outside is continued on the inside with the service boxes, which contain sanitation and auxillary spaces, and give each research platform an identity with its own individual colour.


Kiefer Technic Showroom

Kiefer Technic Showroom is an office building and exhibition space with a dynamic facade that changes to outdoor conditions, optimizing internal climate, while allowing users to personalize their own spaces with user controls.

The shell construction of the facade consists of solid brick walls, reinforced concrete ceilings and floors, and steel encased concrete columns. The facade consist of aluminums posts and transoms with protruding bridges for maintenance, with an EIFS-facade in white plaster. The sun screen operates on electronic shutters of performated aluminum panels.
