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 House of World Cultures in Berlin is being comprehensively modernised and repaired by us. Built in 1957 as a congress hall and affectionately called the "pregnant oyster" by Berliners, the building was rededicated as the House of World Cultures in 1989 after partial collapse, reconstruction and vacancy in order to promote dialogue between the continents.
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.
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.
