Mainz, 14th March 2023 – We are delighted about our success in the two-stage ideas and concept competition for a new laboratory and research building for the non-profit organization TRON (Translational Oncology) in Mainz. Of the five architects invited to participate in the competition ATP’s design was awarded second place.
The biopharmaceutical research institute TRON is planning a new laboratory and research center for personalized therapies for fighting cancer and other serious diseases on the campus of the University Medical Center Mainz. ATP’s design concept reacts to the heterogeneous urban situation with a striking figure that will underline the identity of and mark the start of the realization of the new campus of the University Medical Center Mainz. With its rhombic form and open, transparent facade design, the building also enjoys a powerful presence from afar.
The building services concept is designed in line with the KfW 45 low-energy standard and aims to create a climate-positive building. Energy recycling, the optimal use of energy flows via a low temperature heating/cooling system, and a large-scale PV plant eliminate all operational emissions and create an overall carbon sink. The building addresses all the objectives of the EU Green Deal (circular economy, protection of water resources, environmental protection, climate change adaptation and mitigation, protection of the ecosystem).
