What can the workplace of the future look like in a sustainably changing and internationally networked world of work? Which space typologies support a flexible and collaborative business organisation? After winning a competition organised by Viessmann, we explored these questions in several workshops with company employees.
The administration building from 1965 was refurbished during ongoing operations. It has 6 storeys and has an enormous spatial depth of approx. 40 metres. The existing cellular offices were restructured into a modern open-plan office with flexible, open interior zones and approx. 1,000 workstations.
The Dortmund Theatre was continuously used as an opera house, theatre and playhouse during the reconstruction of the existing building and the new building. The workshops and functional areas were relocated internally to other rooms and outsourced externally if required.
The "Haus der Berliner Festspiele", which was built in the early 1960s and is now a listed building, was extensively renovated, modernised and made fit for modern theatre operations from 2009 to 2011.
Hardly any German state parliament is so associated with its architecture in the public perception as the NRW state parliament with its iconic building on the banks of the Rhine in Düsseldorf. To this day, we oversee the preservation and transformation of the complex, which was completed in 1988, through many conversions and extensions.
The Federal Ministry of Justice has its headquarters in an ensemble of several historical buildings and courtyards. It was possible to preserve the existing substance through careful renovation and additions and to relate it to each other.
We were commissioned by the collector couple Peter and Irene Ludwig as general planners to renovate and refurbish the Ludwig Galerie in the classicist Schloss Oberhausen. Since its redesign in 1998, the gallery has been one of the internationally renowned exhibition venues in the Ruhr region.
The Chocolate Museum vividly shows the entire process from the growth of the cocoa bean to the finished chocolate product. By converting and extending the former customs yard, an exceptionally successful museum with 600,000 visitors a year was created at the prominently located entrée of Cologne's Rheinauhafen harbour.
