Brief
Conversion of a warehouse into an office and administration building
Size
3,300 sqm

blocher partners created new offices for the Hoffmann Group, Europe's leading system partner for quality tools. The company’s headquarters in Munich now has 200 modern workspaces, as the basis for open, future-oriented communication. The Hoffmann Group, an international and growing company with some 3,000 employees in 50 countries, is synonymous with high-quality products, and is known for its excellent service and consulting as well as absolute reliability and dependability. In tandem with this family business steeped in tradition, blocher partners developed the concept for an innovative office structure that eschews the usual division into closed-off workspaces.

The architects radically transformed a former warehouse at the company's headquarters, turning it into an impressive office building. Huge glass facades and a newly created interior courtyard – the latter cut into the building’s cubature – create light-filled workspaces and an inspiring atmosphere. The existing building was completely gutted; a central spiral staircase now connects the floors vertically; the new, planted courtyard allows employees to rest their gaze on a green space. The main goal was to create the greatest possible transparency in the workplace and to promote communication between employees.
