A new home for the aeroplanes
The new aeroplane hangar in Braunschweig/Germany designed by Struhk Architects (Braunschweig) will be the new home of the civilian research fleet of aeroplanes operated by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR).
To offer the new research aeroplane ATRA, a modified airbus A320, an adequate lodging, the old hangar has been dismantled. The new building offers on a total of 6.121 square metres place for two hangars, office rooms, warehouses and workshops. The main hall – a steel construction built by the consortium Rohlfing/Profil Stahl- und Metallbau – with a size of 3.154 square metres is able to house the ATRA and two other research aeroplanes.
