The Highlight Towers high-rise ensemble in Munich’s Schwabing district consists of two staggered high-rise slabs with heights of 126 and 109 m respectively and two base buildings. The two towers, which are offset against each other, are designed as statically separate systems and are only connected by connecting bridges as “clip-on elements”. This means that the bridges can be added or removed as required.
Offset High-Rise Towers with Clip-on Bridges
Like the exposed lifts and stairs, they give the buildings a dynamic appearance. The base buildings of the two towers consist of a four-star design hotel in the north and an office building in the south.
