New laboratory building House 6

A house for research and education in the new Rosental-Mitte district.
Three volumes build an ensemble and form an urban configuration, a campus en miniature. With its division into three structures, the House for Research and Education is able to act and react in a differentiated way vis-à-vis the city – permeable, open and small-scale towards the neighbourhood on Maulbeerstrasse, inviting and moderate large-scale towards the future Bleichestrasse.
