DE – Stuttgart, 2010 | Public Building

Cubes in the center

The sixteen storey skyscraper of the energy provider is a highly visible landmark in Stuttgart. Three office blocks are being built on the site next to the skyscraper.

The complex is rather closed in the direction of the city, while the courtyards across from the adjacent forest are open. With the expansive plaza in front of the skyscraper clearly defines the entrance situation for the large complex. The lobby is the centre for both the forum, which embodies the public section, as well as the internal office wings. The cubic upholstered furniture in anthracite and broken white underscore the clear and reduced design of the foyer.
