Construction of a new company headquarters with integrated photovoltaic façade

KACO new energy, Neckarsulm

The company headquarters for KACO new energy GmbH strikes a balance between the landscape and the industrially dominated space of the city. The assembly and office areas are united into a single building form by a photovoltaic façade and, as a result, take on the scale of the neighbourhood. The wing for company management, which appears to float above the building thanks to the joint-like storey of ribbon windows, presents itself to the roundabout as a canopy with a wide-reaching symbolic presence.

This project was discussed in the network series “wieweiterarbeiten – Workspaces of the Future“.
