2 – 5 building planning
2016 – 2019
The new Preclinical Center is planned as a laboratory building for experimental research with special laboratories, offices and a common area. It replaces existing, obsolete buildings and completes the multi-building institute in the Schwabing district of Munich.
The building plot is bordered by the grounds of the Schwabing Clinic to the south and the MPI depot to the north. The structure is therefore characterised by a long and narrow geometry and consists of 2 levels above ground and 2 below.
As a continuation of the surrounding wall of the Schwabing Clinic, the part of the structure above ground is subdivided into a ground floor and an upper floor which extends above it. A double skin exposed concrete facade is planned for the ground floor. Its structure and formwork will be oriented on the neighbouring roughly plastered clinic wall. The upper floor will protrude above this with a curtain facade made of pre-weathered copper panels.
