Siemens City, Vienna

With respect to „green building“, the new company headquarters of Siemens in Austria not only meets the criteria of the EU, but represents an embodiment of the central corporate objective of „sustainability“. This becomes apparent not only in the architecture of the company but also in its fittings. Energy-efficient luminaires with optimum light distribution are one aspect of this.The main emphasis of the entrance axis is placed on the 4.60 metre high, elegant light building elements.
