For a high-tech machine-tool company, a new Customer and Administration Building marks the third building phase for the company’s Stuttgart based headquarters.
While Barkow Leibinger has completed a series of industrial buildings for Trumpf on that site, this project marks a dramatic shift in their approach. Urbanistically situated within the original office ensemble dating back to the 70’s, this project takes issue with the question of the office/ workspace and sustainability.
A pair of offset office tracts are organized on a split-level concept to enhance communication and flexibility between working groups. These four and five level spaces hover over a trio of crystal-formed volumes which contain an auditorium, public lobby, and exhibition spaces. While forming a bill-board-like wall to the autobahn, the building also creates an entrance court with the existing buildings.
Ventilation and light chimneys, double façades, and poured-in place concrete cooling decks compliment the split-level concept supporting the energy performance of the building. Significant is the aspect of collaboration with contributions from structural engineers and energy consultants.
