Europaallee 'Site D'

Europaallee is a new urban district west of the city’s main train station, south of its terminating tracks. It consists of eight new buildings, each assigned a letter, ’A-H’; ‘Site D’ was designed by WAA. Google is the district’s main tenant, and will occupy most office space in ‘Site D’. Parallel to the adjacent railroad tracks; the first two floors will contain retail and dining, organized around a central void traversed by dual ramping escalators. Eight floors of office space are set atop the plinth, organized around an multi-level exterior courtyard, essentially creating two office ‘towers’. A closed cavity façade system, bound by polished concrete containing Carrara marble, encases the building; luxuriously contrasting matte-brass finishings.
