Siemens' New Corporate Headquarters, Munich

Environmental friendliness and energy efficiency are playing a key role: the new building will meet the world's highest sustainability standards.

Henning Larsen Architects win the architecture competition for the rebuilding of Siemens' corporate headquarters in Munich.

This is the Ludwig Ferdinand Palais on Wittelsbacherplatz in Munich as we know it today. It will look just the same from the outside even after the restoration of the building structure.

Early in the morning the trees arrived at the construction site in Munich. For transport, the large root balls were packed in jute cloth, the crowns were gently held together. A total of 12 new trees will be planted.

Construction of the new Siemens headquarters building at Wittelsbacherplatz in Munich is virtually complete. When it opens its doors in 2016, the building will provide a modern, inspiring work environment for up to 1,200 employees. Environmental friendliness and energy efficiency are playing a key role: the new building will meet the world's highest sustainability standards. In 2010, Siemens and the city of Munich announced the launch of the construction project and organized an architectural competition. The winning design, which was developed by the Danish architectural firm Henning Larsen Architects, skillfully combines tradition with the future. The historic Ludwig Ferdinand Palais and its adjacent building are being seamless integrated into the new cutting-edge building. The ground floor of the structure has been designed as a publicly accessible campus with green inner courtyards, outdoor seating, exhibition spaces, café and restaurant. The result will be a new urban quarter in the heart of Munich which, after its opening in the summer of 2016, will allow pedestrians to stroll directly from the city's historic center to its museum district. The project is being implemented by Siemens Real Estate, a leading corporate real estate company which is responsible for all of Siemens' real estate activities.
