Munich Re, Munich

Architects Sauerbruch Hutton envisioned the opening up of the 80s-era administrative building to the outside with an innovative and colourful facade, and better integration of the building into its urban environment. The primary focus was on optimizing the building’s energy balance as well as making spatial and ecological improvements to the offices. The office concept combines a variety of office designs, such as combined, open space and conference areas.


This concept was implemented using solid and glass elements from the partition wall system 2000 and the single-gazed “room-in-room” system Kubus I. More than 70 cubes are harmoniously integrated into the open office spaces thanks to their transparency, and their high sound insulation values and integrated sound-insulated ventilation unit guarantee a high level of comfort for employees.


  • Units: 70 Raum-in-Raum-Systeme Kubus I
  • Glazing: TVG 16 mm
  • Sound insulation: Dn,T,w = 32 dB (entspricht R’w von 37 dB)
