The Cottbus “Startblock B2” regional start-up center serves as an impulse generator for the region, intended to enable new perspectives for people in Lusatia during the current structural change.
A hybrid construction that evolves from heavy to light supports sustainable solutions such as manual night ventilation, shading, and geothermal component activation. The striking screens of the façade structure the building sculpturally: the identity-forming city colors create a silvery- red alternate image.
The business incubator is a workshop for experimentation and development. This workshop idea is implemented throughout the building in terms of design in the sense of a refined shell.
