The guiding theme behind the conversion
project was tradition and modernity, recycling and teamwork. Accordingly, the
result is a visionary office concept in this over a century old factory
building and based on the sustainable idea of building ‘upcycling’.
While maintaining the authentic building
structure, the architectural offices of fickenscher architektur+ created a
modern open-space office landscape for around 50 members of staff that follows
the symbolism of ‘Renewal occurs from within’. The claim behind the entire project was to
unite sustainability and design. In addition to the full energetic
modernisation of the old factory building, all of the materials were selected
on the basis of sustainability and energy efficiency during the expansion.
Thus, for instance, the fitted carpet was made from 100% recycled material and
the wooden flooring came from native woods; sheep's wool was used as acoustic
elements, and long-lasting office interiors were procured from suppliers and
service providers in the region.
Following the eight-month project, staff were able to move back into the new working world in August 2016.
