Philips Headquarter – Hamburg

philips hoch 400

The new office building, Philips European Headquarters, consists of two 17 storey office towers having an approximate gross area of 22,000m2.

The scheme design of Architects KSP Engel & Zimmermann provides optimum area and energy efficiencies.

The building's energy concept is as follows:

  • Activated concrete slabs provide office ceilings with radiant heating and cooling
  • Minimised mechanical ventilation and
  • Energy saving chilled water and hot water generation

allowing an economical building operation.

The facade construction allows each user to open his/her window, providing natural ventilation – in the case of fire, smoke can also be vented via the openable windows.

The 60 meter tower is a new landmark in Hamburg's skyline.
