Dietger Wissounig Architekten designed this complex as an integral part of the landscape. It incorporates several green roofs that provide great insulation for the indoora and a fusion with the farms around it. Built along a busy road, the center’s green wall protects nearby houses from the noise and pollution coming from the highway.

This modern tunnel-monitoring complex was designed to last a long time. It was built from extremely robust materials like reinforced concrete, together with steel and industrial glass. Also, in some areas high-quality resistant materials had to be used (like stainless steel for the washing bays) as they are constantly exposed to steam, which leads to corrosion.
