The office is my castle

blocher partners conceptualise, plan and build the new administrative office for the Gesellschaft für Wohnungs- und Gewerbebau Baden-Württemberg AG (GWG, association for residential and commercial construction) at its Stuttgart site. GWG’s qualities come out in the building itself: innovation, transparency and down-to-earth character.

The four-storey building with an additional mezzanine floor will be widely visible as a city block of greater independence and strong presence. Centrally located in Stuttgart’s hospital quarter, it will contribute considerably to the upgrading of the quarter. The courtyard’s redesign does its part: located above the underground garage, the courtyard will be planted, thus becoming a welcoming oasis. The high standard of the urban and constructional concept quality and optimal use of space continues on the inside, with a flexible and sustainable office structure, carefully selected textile surfaces as well as a material mix of exposed concrete, glass and wood.
