IZB Residence Campus at Home

The design hotel »IZB Residence Campus at Home« was officially inaugurated a few days ago: it is the first hotel to have been entirely equipped by Occhio.

The concept of the IZB Residence is unparalleled: Since October 2014 the Campus Tower has housed scientists and business travelers from around the world. It forms the communicative focus of the Martinsried Campus and its special architecture makes it an unmistakable landmark. The solitary 27 meter-high building stands out above the monotony of the functional buildings on the campus, if only because of its height. An elegant seven-story building, whose glass front is embraced by white aluminum strips, rises from a triangular floor plan.

Inside the central theme is flowing space too: the diverse areas of usable space flow into each other on all stories. The lighting concept by Occhio pursues this principle of connection: architecture, interior design and lighting blend thanks to the comprehensive design.

On the ground floor the Più alto surface-mounted spotlights are threaded in decorative ceiling wells, which playfully take up the design of the façade. Accent lighting for the guest rooms, with their open design, is provided by the Sento luminaire system in the latest LED technology with excellent quality of light and optimal ease of use. Duna shape spotlights were used in the Faculty Club and meander across the ceiling, echoing the principle of the merging of architecture and lighting.
