glass lobby façade with crystal-like pattern for sternhöhe möhringen in stuttgart

In the southern Stuttgart district of Möhringen, the central building of the former Daimler AG Campus received a glass lobby façade in the course of a revitalisation.
BM + P Architekten designed a crystalline façade structure that extends 11m over the ground floor and the first floor. It consists of 156 triangular insulating glass elements arranged at different angles, which provide natural lighting for the reception and conference areas.

  • The façade structure was optimised by seele in terms of cost effectiveness, while still fulfilling the demand for a filigree construction solution. In order to accommodate the inwardly and outwardly inclined glass, the webs of the T-profiles were aligned horizontally and the intersections were placed as close together as possible. An individual support was made for each of the insulating glass elements with varying stepped edges, and an elaborate bearing principle ensures that only a silicone joint is visible from the outside.
    A special glass coating reinforces the crystalline façade structure by reflecting the surroundings and the sky, and ensures a pleasant energy input in every season.
