Design, planning and implementation of the redesign of the entrance hall of the European headquarters of Daiichi Sankyo Europe into a representative foyer using innovative 3D planning tools and production technology.
The Japanese pharmaceutical company Daiichi Sankyo maintains its European headquarters in Munich. During the redesign of the headquarters, the entrance area was to be transformed into a representative and unique foyer in which the elements of reception with lobby, central mailroom and IT are harmoniously integrated. Architectural design, object design and the production of the elements formed an inseparable unit in this project. Huber Lischka developed an overarching spatial concept for the foyer, which is open on two sides, that structures the multi-storey light-flooded space and ideally stages the new objects. In the air space, which tapers upwards, the architects juxtaposed the vertical access elements with a colour-changing double helix structure made of interlocking chain curtains that stage the waiting area but also separate it from the foyer area. The sides of the office blocks are covered with greenery and colour-coordinated glass surfaces. The two counters are placed as dynamic amorphous elements to the right and left of the helix, thus delimiting the foyer to the sides. Both are planned as prototypes in 3D, produced in 3D printing and assembled on site and provided with a uniform surface. The space-creating elements were optimised using modern visualisation techniques and produced using 3D printing technology.
