Building technology of the future

Architecture office: Gatermann + Schossig, Cologne

The Capricorn office building is situated in the media district in the Southwest of Düsseldorf. This area houses international and leading regional architects offices.

The large glass halls of the meandering building act as sound barriers, whilst the windows of the glass facade are accentuated in alternating tones of red. The building, which was designed by Gatermann + Schossig architects, combines state-of-the-art ecological technology with outstanding comfort and quality. The compact construction, exemplary heat insulation, an innovative ventilation system with heat waste heat recovery, concrete core cooling in connection with geothermal energy systems and natural ventilation are all part of the concept of this low energy building.

GEZE contributed to these modern technologies: A Slimdrive SLV corner sliding door which is only tapered by a few degrees, defines the entrance area. The GEZE SecuLogic emergency exit system controls the entrance and exit ways in case of emergency. The TSA 160 automatic swing door drives as well as the TSA 160-IS double-leaf and Slimdrive SL-FR sliding door drive for escape routes and emergency exits facilitate the access through various passages within the building.
