Office Building in Stuttgart, Germany by Blocher Blocher Partners

The rustic charm of exposed concrete – a double-layered concrete façade with cavity insulation – plays off against the ethereal transparency of broad windows. Elements of Sipo mahogany, strategically placed, give the façade depth; and the clean lines add a sense of order and dynamics.

The office building consists of three full floors, a garden, a roof and cellar. The simplicity of the interior design, with its sandblasted and exposed concrete surfaces as well as its cement screed flooring, works in harmony with the outer appearance. Open floors, which nevertheless have clearly defined spaces, make the boundaries between working areas disappear.

A furnished patio adjoins the generous cafeteria on the garden level, flanked on one side by the single-story wing of the building. The other side opens out onto a two-story atrium, separated from the cafeteria only by a sliding glass wall. From the ground floor, the atrium opens into an impressive open space graced by a light-installation inspired by the “jackstraws” or “pick-up-sticks” game. There are also manifold visual perspectives to be enjoyed from the open-designed steel staircase, which leads from the garden level to the uppermost floor.

Certified with Gold by the DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council), the building incorporates a broad range of sustainability measures. Amongst them are the prevention of toxic materials or the reduction of the life circle costs. The intermingling of ecology and economy also shows within the fusion of building construction and technology which includes a thermally comfortable room climate as much as energy saving at the maximum.
