2 – 8 building planning
2014 – 2018
With its distinctive U-shaped layout, the three-part new building complex, consisting of the MDC-planned, “In vivo pathophysiological laboratory building” (IPL), an additional building for infrastructure as well as the planned research facility for experimental medicine (FEM) of the Charité University Medical Centre forms a quiet enclosed space towards the forest area in the south and east.
The character of the three-part building is distinguished by two very different facade materials consisting of Douglas slats and glass fibre concrete elements. A campus facing foyer serves to develop the public functions of the IPL such as the seminar and office rooms on the ground floor as well as the special laboratories with restricted access. The two organisations cooperated on an infrastructure building that would connect both new buildings, allowing to fully take advantage of synergies between the IPL and the neighbouring FEM in the areas of supply and disposal, storage and energy generation.
