Construction Management Office Tower Bau 1, Basel

The tallest skyscraper in Switzerland

The highrise offers space for about 2000 employees of the pharmaceutical company F. Hoffmann- La Roche AG. The building project in the city of Basel (Switzerland) is aimed to relocate and to merge the colleagues who are currently dispersed at various locations around the city. The building with a total height of 178 m creates a bridge between function and technology and blends in perfectly with the Basel cityscape.

The 178-metre high, stepped tower designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron offers accessible terraces and multi-storey open meeting areas on every second floor. A limited amount of glass and effective sun protection in the multi-layered façade ensure energy efficiency. The same applies to the use of waste heat for heating and ground water for cooling. Modularisation and 3D modelling stand for innovative planning.
