The Deutsche Post headquarters building in Bonn is characterised by a synthesis of high transparency, perfect functionality and excellent component design. A filigree double-skin facade surrounds the 162 m high building, which consists of two offset circular sections. This facade makes it possible to ventilate and cool the building naturally.
Perfect Synthesis of Transparency, Functionality and Component Design
In addition to the projecting “wingwalls“, which are stabilised by filigree wind needles, the penthouse area is remarkable about the building. It is surrounded by an 11 m high glass wall.
The Post Tower was awarded the 10 Years Award of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) in 2014.
