Like a pair of mountains the new headquarters of the outdoor clothing and equipment brand Dynafit will be located at the foot of the German alps in Kiefersfelden. In its two intersecting building volumes it will accomodate a shop, office spaces, a kindergarten and a private appartment.
Knippers Helbig has been supporting the architects of Barozzi Veiga’s on the facade design from the competition phase onwards, which has been successfully completed in March 2019. The ca. 2475m² of sloped envelope surfaces are composed of a serrated steel stick system facade with high performance glazing units and triangular exterior shading features. The facade is optimized to comply with high energetic requirements and provides light-flooded interior spaces and views to the scenic surroundings, while creating a distinctive external appearance.
The ca. 3660m² of vertical facades are comprised of an insulated, rear ventilated rainscreen system featuring the same triangular panels to form a homogeneous entity extending over the entire building.
