The building is covered in trellis-like wooden cladding.

Here’s some text from the architects:

Central facilities, Martinsried Campus, Munich

Within the north-south oriented building layout of the future campus grounds at Martinsried, the new building housing central facilities, cafeteria and child care centres has a status of its own.

The building, with a quadratic base form, presents itself as less of a free-standing structure than as an integral element of the open space concept.

Like a gazebo, the low building, with a trellis-like timber external façade, blends into the landscaped garden.
