new building for the center for translational cell research (ztz)
In 2016, the new Center for Translational Cell Research (ZTZ) at the University Medical Center Freiburg was completed. In this new research building, the research and treatment centers of the Ludwig Heilmeyer Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCCF) and the Center for Chronic Immune Deficiency (CCI) are combined by the renowned Stuttgart architecture firm Heinle, Wischer und Partner.
The distinctly structured cuboid building is a component of the Breisacher Straße Institute that developed from the reorganization of the medical department a few years ago. The new six-story building was designed with a reinforced concrete skeleton; it has a cassette façade that matches the institute’s existing building and was produced and installed by INOCLAD Engineering. The cassettes are replicated on the long sides of the building through the use of a white metal grid, which the drainpipes and sun protection elements are hidden behind. In addition, the glass element façade, with its dark profiles, contrasts excitingly with the white framing.
