BSH Technology Center Laundry


The new technology centre will be a combined research, office and laboratory building situated at Siemens Technology Park in Berlin Spandau. The new Berlin-based technology centre will house workplaces for 800 people. Within its premises product platforms for washing machines and tumble dryers will be developed along with basic research.

The gross floor area covering 31.500 square metres consists of a 7-floor building whose floor plan encompasses central research and test rooms, a laboratory section as well as six adjacent, six-floor office modules and a canteen. The dimensions of the building (105 m * 85 m) are broken down to a comfortable scale by modularization and the rounding off of its seemingly technological design. As a distinct architectural signal with a strong visual impact there will be a large central window covering several floors on the eastern facade, behind of which there will be a concentration of meeting rooms.
