The office and service building at Parkring 2–6 was part of the first construction stage of Business Campus Garching. The business park has been developed since 2005 as a commercial park with offices, stores, cafes, and restaurants in a parklike environment with numerous green and water areas. A total of 230.000 m² of total usable area is to be realized at the Business Campus Garching. The buildings of Business Park Garching are arranged along a ring road system and are grouped around a central, 4,000 m² large lake with a fountain. The so-called „E01“, the office building at Parkring 2-6, is situated alongside at this lake. The 25.000 m², sevenstory complex was planned by the architects of Gewerbeplan GmbH as a longitudinal structure with two head-end buildings and a tie beam. This floor plan guarantees flexible rental spaces. The individual stories can be expanded to meet almost any requirements: open-plan, group, combination, and individual offices are all possible. The head-end buildings and wings, with their representative entrance area, present themselves as classical perforated façades on one side of the building and have an boldly horizontal arrangement on the other. The connecting structures between them, with a curved ground plan, are characterized by continuous opaque spandrel areas and ribbon windows. The Schüco aluminum façade was executed as a filigree mullion and transom construction with a façade raster of 130 cm in order to achieve the greatest possibility flexibility for the interiors. The large office ensemble is additionally structured by the different shapes of the different façades. The functional and clear architectural idiom combines the individual parts into one cohesive building.
