Plant breeding and visitor-oriented uses are to be optimally linked with each other and both paths are to wind their way around each other. To make this possible, a double-helix staircase was planned,
which serves as a central access element and offers constant visual contact to the opposite path. Two building paths will be created, which lead over a total of four floors, as well as a museum and
Connect the greenhouse.
The design combines in an intelligent and structurally very interesting way multiple aspects of an efficient building concept. Thus, not only ecological topics are dealt with, but also
The double helix also creates exciting spatial sequences in terms of building history, which ultimately lead to an impressive structure.
