Client Balluff GmbH
To expand the Balluff headquarters near Stuttgart Airport, two very different new buildings are planned which follow one basic architectural idea: to combine formal office areas with informal spaces that promote movement, inspiration, interaction and cross-team collaboration. The spacious hall design of the office and development building in the heart of the Balluff Campus combines workspaces for business and innovation. It is articulated by the cascading levels of the individual units, a wide center ramp as a meeting area and island-like set glass patios as versatile usable green spaces. With its striking dynamics, the landmark, visible from afar, is the iconographic figurehead of the company to the outside. Behind the glassy volume of the outer shell is the interlocking layering of open and closed volumes, creating semi-private workspaces and communal gathering areas.
