The Zahnmedizinisch-Biowissenschaftliche Forschungs- u. Entwicklungszentrum Witten (ZBZ) not only houses parts of the dentistry department of Universität Witten-Herdecke but also start-up companies from its eponymous field.
The ensemble of four towers interconnects with the campus buildings and through the staggered arrangement of the cylinders is topographically fitting.
In the three taller towers, we find the treatment rooms and offices. The smaller tower forms the entrance and seminar area. The modular structure of the three tall horizontal towers is in line with the vertical lamella facade with storey-high windows. The smaller tower is encased by a homogeneous metal shell. The basic structure reflects the flexible use of the start-up centre.
