EUROINDUSTRIEPARK NORD in Munich – a collection of industrial buildings, warehouses, functional buildings. Parking lots without any urban context. Here Gienger needs a pick-up market and a showroom for bathrooms. LORENZATELIERS wins the invited competition with a “dark, bent ENERGIESPIRALE” – the two functions open up on the glazed front pages.
This dynamic form sets a technology-oriented sign for the home automation wholesale Gienger – an unmistakable place for sustainability and innovative design in a no-sign environment. The outer skin consists of solar panels, photovoltaic panels, metal and glass elements. Inviting canopies welcome the visitors and create a sheltered forecourt. The spiral is open on both sides for two different uses: a SHOWROOM and an ABHOLMARKT (SANITARY WHOLESALE)
Inside, 2,600 m² of exhibition space on various levels, combined with ramps, provide sufficient space for a creative product presentation. In addition to bathroom ideas, renewable and alternative energies as well as modern technologies are the focus. In keeping with the content, the building itself embodies the principle of sustainability. A photovoltaic system and a combined energy and heat system enable the climate-neutral use of electrical and thermal energy.
