The newly designed Audi Terminal was built to replace the old car dealership found on the site and the three-storey administration building and to present the expanding range of models in an urban environment that is appropriate for the brand. In accordance with the new concept from the architects Allmann Sattler Wappner, the terminal was designed as an architectural highlight in the style of a showroom with a lounge, bistro and shop.
Dynamics, asymmetry and transparency are the main design features of the Terminal. The asymmetrical curved segments found inside simulate the dynamics of a real situation on the road and serve as showrooms for the presentation of new vehicles. The rooms are stacked on top of each other, allowing a large number of vehicles to be presented within a relatively small inner-city space.
The dynamic façade and the curved interior create an expressive room impression. Glass and aluminium define the overall look of the terminal, in particular through the perforated plate façade that creates transparency and allows the interior to be experienced from outside.
WSP was commissioned with the preparation for and awarding of the contract to a general contractor as well as property management by the architect, who also took over general planning for this project.
