The Federal Republic of Germany’s bid to host the Secretariat of the Green Climate Fund [GCF] in Bonn includes LAVA’s design for the proposed headquarters.

LAVA’s concept is ‘an ecological model project’ and demonstrates LAVA’s motto: ‘green is the new black’.
With a design inspired by the beautiful setting in the Rhine valley, and with curvilinear forms, natural light wells, roof top gardens and a large sunken terrace for the restaurant, the three level structure will comply with the latest energy and building ecology standards, meeting the highest demands in terms of sustainability (German gold certificate), ecology and energy efficiency (net zero energy).

Described as ‘architecturally appealing’ and ‘environmentally friendly with functional spaces that foster working productivity’ the proposed GCF headquarters will offer ideal working conditions for approximately 300 Green Climate Fund officials, on a 13,000m2 site.
Offices with state-of-the-art technology, logistics areas with security controls and a visitor reception zone, an auditorium, a conference room, a canteen/cafeteria and an underground car park create optimal working conditions.
