The first hybrid-timber office building in Munich is to be built at Elsenheimer Straße 31. The building is a replacement for a structure which no longer meets the requirements of a modern office building. In terms of form, materials, green open spaces as well as smart building technologies, the new building will meet the highest standards of design, sustainability and future-oriented work.

Glock Liphart Probst & Partner is providing significant support for the project, in particular supporting the creation of building rights in accordance with § 34 German Building Code (BauGB), but also taking into account all other relevant matters of public law.

The development of a cubage which is compatible and permissible in the context of urban development in cooperation with the responsible planning office was an interesting challenge due to the location of the property:

  • in an urban transition area
  • with development plans adjoining on one side,
  • very heterogeneous commercial areas (§ 34 BauGB) on the other side,
  • a residential building across the street, and
  • an existing building at the rear.

With regard to open space planning, a concept had to be developed at a very early stage together with the office for landscape planning in order to compensate for the impact on the existing vegetation.”

Together with the planners, Glock Liphart Probst & Partner also supported the necessary coordination with the responsible approval authorities.
