The design hotel "IZB Residence Campus at Home
" was officially inaugurated a few days ago: it is the first hotel to have been entirely equipped by Occhio
The seven story building with its incisive design forms the striking centerpiece of the Martinsried Life Science Campus
. The concept of a design campus residence with a faculty club which serves as a meeting place for scientists from the surrounding research facilities and their international guests is the first of its kind in the world. The tower was designed by Stark Architekten
, Munich and is comprehensively lit by Occhio
Unique Campus Hotel for leading international researchers
The concept of the IZB Residence
is unparalleled: Since October 2014 the Campus Tower has housed scientists and business travelers from around the world. It forms the communicative focus of the Martinsried Campus and its special architecture makes it an unmistakable landmark.
The solitary 27 meter-high building stands out above the monotony of the functional buildings on the campus, if only because of its height. An elegant seven-story building, whose glass front is embraced by white aluminum strips, rises from a triangular floor plan.
Inside the central theme is flowing space too: the diverse areas of usable space flow into each other on all stories. The lighting concept by Occhio
pursues this principle of connection: architecture, interior design and lighting blend thanks to the comprehensive design.
Immediately in the reception area and restaurant on the ground floor the visitor experiences the skilled continuation of the dynamics of the facade in the interior: the dark suspended and decorative ceiling wells playfully mirror the curved design. They also assume the function of a »chain«, onto which the surface-mounted Più
alto spotlights are »threaded«. The rhythmic arrangement of the spotlights and luminaires enables the targeted lighting of the individual zones and at the same time guides the visitor through the rooms.
