Lufthansa Aviation Center

The headquarters of Deutsche Lufthansa are located directly at Frankfurt Airport. On both sides of a central access spine, the six-storey office modules were connected in alternating sequence.

Transparency, Sound Insulation and Natural Air Supply

For sound insulation reasons, the overall structure was completely covered with a glass facade as well as a roofing over the inner courtyards. The high transparency of the glass facades provide a wonderful view of the landscaped green areas and ensure natural ventilation.
