One of Munich’s largest new development zones goes by the pretty name of “Hirschgarten” – which translates as ‘stag garden’. In recent years, office and living space with perfect accessibility in terms of transport has been created on the former rail tracks – of vital importance to the rapidly growing metropolis. It comes as no surprise that tenants had signed up for all the units in the new office building “Vital Office@Hirschgarten”, developed by the Optima-Aegidius group together with IKR Kuschel GmbH, even before the structure was completed, first and foremost among them Flixbus as the main tenant. The six-storey property with around 7,500 square meters of gross floor area was planned by Munich-based architecture office Allmann Sattler Wappner, who placed the emphasis on ecological standards from the get-go. Which has paid off, as the house was recently awarded Gold in the internationally recognized certification system Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).
For the sanitary facilities the Vola 4923 electronic basin mixer in stainless steel was used throughout as it saves both energy and water as well as being highly resistant to corrosion. The easy access to all components further makes the Vola 4923 basin mixer extremely easy to service. The thermal disinfection can be remote controlled and provides protection against legionella, offering great ease of use. The building’s sophisticated look is also reflected in the sensor’s design – it is embedded in a stainless steel plate. The unique finish of the stainless steel mixer is the result of a special brushing method. The blue light strips set into the basin countertop thus create subtle glints and reflections. (fp)
