Genius Loci – blending into the undulating Eifel landscape

The new construction of the operations premises and administrative building for the headquarters of the future-oriented company KNE represents – from an urban planning point of view – the important start of the upcoming expansion of the L11 commercial zone in Niederprüm. The distinct cubic building with its eye-catching length assertively blends into the steep terrain of the hilly landscape. The building forms a landmark in the natural setting, at the three-way junction of the B410 and the L11. The massive concrete base absorbs the ground slope and fits into the existing topography, connecting the two-storey administrative building and the operations premises separated by the depot yard. The building ensemble is characterised by a fronted vertical timber cladding and blends in well with the surrounding landscape. The exterior materiality captures the ecological vision of the company and reflects the landscape-influenced location of the building.
