Oases in the new ipf building
The new ipf electronic building has two interior roof terraces that provide daylight to the adjacent rooms. The terraces were designed in such a way that they can be used by employees and visitors for a relaxed stay outdoors. This is made possible by the light-colored ceramic composite tiles, the lush green sedum plants, and the inviting furniture.
In addition to the basic architectural idea, functional aspects played the main role in the implementation. Therefore, the terraces have a special substructure with integrated drainage and a top layer of water-storing expanded shale. Additional watering of the sedum perennials is therefore not necessary.
In glorious May weather, the fresh air oases have now been inaugurated and are available for use during break times and corporate events.
