GREEN CLIMATE FUND BONN

LAVA Architects as Architects

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. LThe 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’. The vision for international climate protection will be realised in the building design itself, with innovative solutions such as: • Facades articulate according to building orientation • Surfaces integrate various means of regenerative energy production • Photo-voltaics and bioreactors demonstrate the application of the latest technologies • Building responds to the site to maximize the experience of its natural qualities 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. The proposed building has excellent transport connections, is in walking distance from several Federal ministries, including the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
