Adjacent to a vineyard in the city center of Stuttgart, the new administration building of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce has been completed in 2014.
The urban context in the immediate vicinity of the central station, as well as the sloping topography of the neighboring vineyard define the inspiring starting point for this project.
Our design concept tries to integrate both aspects, so that the new administration building is now perceptible as an important architectural contribution and at the same time the uniqueness of the vineyard can still be experienced.
The construction of the new IHK headquarters in downtown Stuttgart has been completed in September 2014. The space allocation program is including training rooms, event spaces, and an administrative and service center. On the ground floor the visitors can immediately find a large function room which can be enlarged to the foyer. Borrowed lights are illuminating this arrival area and most public space of the building.
A large single flight of stairs leads to the first floor, which houses two amply conference rooms and several seminar rooms. On the upper floors the examination rooms and the more private office spaces are located. Each floor offers unique views to the vineyard and the city center of Stuttgart.
