Victory in Competition for the Fraunhofer Institute
ATP wins the competition for an energy-optimised research building for the Fraunhofer Institute IFAM in Bremen, carried out in line with § 25 VOF.
The new modern volume of the research building for the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials (IFAM) offers the institute a new sense of order and composure. The concentration of the parking and the very conscious development of the open seating and routes across the site reflect a central campus idea.
Atrium-like elements both connect the various spatial elements vertically and optimise the creation of independently operable horizontal entities. In addition to this, these atria will make a sustainable contribution to the creation of true research worlds. Additional aspects of sustainability are, amongst other things: natural ventilation via the atria, adiabatic cooling via the large areas of water, an improved microclimate due to both the integration with the surrounding areas of greenery and the accessible green roofs, the use of building materials with a good CO2 balance, the low energy double skin façade and the choice of timber floors in the public areas etc.
