O2 Headquarters

    Bildinformation

O2 Headquarters, Uptown Munich

This high-rise tower with 38 storeys is 146 metres tall and was built immediately adjacent to the Olympic stadium in Munich.

The main feature of this landmark building is its glass façade with circular windows that are electrically operable to provide natural ventilation for the offices. The high-rise tower is supplemented by four lower buildings and a pine-tree garden.

The seven-storey office blocks that flank the tower are connected with one another by means of a roof of curved louvres and a boulevard. The glass walls between them create quiet patios.

Restaurants, cafés and shops line the path from the nearby subway station to the offices and give the entire district an important degree of autonomy.
