Corum breaks ground

The construction of ‘Corum’, previously know as ‘Falk Areal', has started in the German city of Freiburg.

Inspired by the neighboring historic freight depot and its pitched roofs and rational, industrial design language, Corum is envisioned as a place of encounters and exchange - a lively meeting point for working, living and culture in the area. Developed by Lifa Breisgau, the future campus will provide 350 workplaces, including the headquarters of the pharmaceutical company Dr. Falk Pharma and the Falk Foundation, alongside restaurants and public amenities. Set for completition in 2026, the building is on track for DGNB gold certification, with a flexible, future-proof design and a modular hybrid timber construction.
