Dailycsr.com – 28 April 2016 – The Company of Siemens Real Estate has virtually completed the construction of its headquarter buildings which is located at “Wittelsbacherplatz in Munich”. The inauguration of this building is likely to be soon in this year, whereby the building will exhibit “a modern, inspiring work environment” which could accommodate as many as “1,200 employees”.
 
Moreover, the architecture of the building entertains ‘environmental friendliness’ along with “energy efficiency”, whereby it will “meet the world's highest sustainability standards”. In the year of 2010, Siemens in collaboration of the Munich city launched the “construction project” by organising “an architectural competition”, whereby the “wining design” was taken forward by “Henning Larsen Architects” firm. The architects skilfully combined the traditional methods with innovative ideas.
 
The famous Ludwig Ferdinand Palais along with its “adjacent building” are being integrated into this “new cutting-edge building”. The ground floor of the building sports “green inner courtyards, outdoor seating, exhibition spaces, café and restaurant” imitating a “publicly accessible campus”. The structure has been designed as a “new urban quarter in the heart of Munich”, which will be joining “the city's historic center to its museum district” accessible within walking distance.
