Starnberg District Office - Extension

In 1982, Auer Weber defined the main features of the Starnberg District Office in its competition entry. The existing building was constructed between 1985 and 1987, and in 1989 it was awarded the German Architecture Prize. The need for employees, which has increased over the past 34 years, meant that it needed to be expanded. The concept for the extension sees it largely resembling the existing building, both externally and internally, with no break between the existing building and the extension, so that both staff and visitors feel as if they are in one building. In addition to meeting and social rooms, the extension accommodates 160 workplaces and is designed as a KfW-55 efficient building. Heating and cooling take place via thermal component activation. The new 250kWp photovoltaic system supplies a groundwater heat pump, which in turn enables CO2-free heat generation.
