Research building for University of Lübeck (CBBM) Lübeck
Scientists from various disciplines carry out research at the ‘Centre of Brain, Behavior and Metabolism’, into how these three areas influence one another. In collaboration with the architects, KREBS+KIEFER developed a supporting system that allows the various usable areas to be rearranged with relatively little effort.
The planning focused on the sensible organisation of publicly accessible seminar and meeting rooms and restricted laboratory areas. Covered atria are used to both connect the usable areas and also invite people to linger and engage in discussion. This enables unimpeded interaction and cooperation between the research groups. KREBS+KIEFER designed wide-span supporting structures to implement the support-free architectural design of the atria.
This sustainable building concept enables an approximate 30 per cent reduction in the annual primary energy requirement in accordance with the 2009 Energy Saving Decree.
