The new headquarter for the Sparkasse Bremen integrates discreet and easily into the situation of the crossing Universitätsallee and the motorway approach. As a solitary building it continues the open urban structure of the University environment. The building form is developed from the basic shape of a rectangle. Cut outs and voids create differentiated spaces for a high range of working possibilities.
Within the volumes private outdoor areas are created, enclosed by thefaçade they’re protected from street noise. The ground floor, which mainly houses the semi-public functions, is visually separated from the four office floors above. The transparent base directs the customers into the interior of the building and the green courtyard provides a high quality space to dwell.
