The OpernTurm (‘opera tower’) is a high-rise building with a height of 170 m near the Opernplatz. The tower is accessed by an 18m high lobby. A podium building with seven floors completes the entire ensemble to the opera square. Through a uniform yellow-beige stone cladding on the facade of the house, it harmoniously fits with existing buildings around the opera square. The opera tower consumes 23 percent less energy than required by the EnEV 2007 Energy Saving Ordinance.
The OpernTurm was designed by architect Christoph Mäckler.
