LANUV NRW Office building

Enriching the environment

KZA completed the office building for the LANUV (State Office for Nature, the Environment and Consumer Protection), which is located in the immediate vicinity of the laboratory and workshop buildings that KZA also designed, in early 2007.

A U-shaped structure with recessed lobby encloses a landscaped inner courtyard and offers space for offices and a cafeteria. Particular consideration was given to ecological aspects, such as a green roof, windows made from European timber and drainage of stormwater into troughs, infiltration ditches and ponds, when developing the concept.
