The Cradle

The Cradle


The timber hybrid building “The Cradle” designed by HPP architects shows how architecture makes the city fit for the future. Interboden GmbH & Co. KG, the project developer of this new building, has set itself the goal of integrating as many C2C aspects as possible.

The load-bearing timber structure not only benefits the office building's carbon footprint, but also contributes to its reusability, as the façade is designed for dismantling. In addition, wood contributes to a positive indoor air climate, as it regulates moisture and improves users' well-being. This effect is reinforced by using non-toxic materials.

As one of the first projects, The Cradle's Material Passport is linked to its BIM model.

A service point for mobility, a so-called “mobility hub”, will be set up on the ground floor. Building users and residents of the neighborhood will have access to a range of car and bike sharing offers that are primarily aimed at e-mobility.
