The Trianel Corporate Centre in Aachen by gmp
May 8, 2012

gmp von Gerkan Marg und partner Trianel AachenThe jury of the competition for the Corporate Center of the Trianel municipal utilities network has selected the submission by architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp) as the winning entry. The new building is located along a major road next to the Tivoli stadium. From 2013 on it is to be built in two phases, the first of which comprises 9,600 square metres of gross floor area and will accommodate 400 members of staff. In the second, optional phase the building can be extended by 4,800 square metres to accommodate a further 200 employees. The building’s sustainability concept merits a silver DGNB certificate. The gmp design team includes a DGNB-accredited auditor, who advises on the applicable criteria.
From an urban design point of view, the four-storey building with its tranquil trapeze-shaped structure acts as a counterpoise to the dominating stadium and the varied architecural styles of the neighborhood. The generously glazed facades open up views into the park to the south of the building. The white horizontal solar screening slats made of aluminium profiles create a calm overall appearance, which has a harmonising effect on the surroundings.
