FIAT Chrysler Automobiles
Frankfurt am Main. Germany
The FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles group and the Universum Group debt management move their headquarters to the dynamic Lindley-Quarter, in full expansion in the neighbourhood of the city that takes in the workers from both headquarters. The FCA building has the LEED Gold category, according to the LEED international system of certification of sustainable buildings.
The building is divided into two annexed and independent buildings. Both, of 6 storey-high, make a total of almost 10,000 m2 of enveloping surface, designed as a grid made up by vision modules and opaque zones that accurately emphasise the clearance height of the building, and the horizontal division between storeys. More than 750 modules in the vision zones (around 3,700 m2) are partly isolated and partly assembled like a modular curtain wall. The more than 3,000 m2 of opaque zones in the office floors are made of metallic cladding that stand over the first level of the façade. The ground floor and the attic of the building are executed with more than 1,300 m2 stick curtain wall, made of steel and aluminium respectively.
