Siemens – on one hand it is a name, a reputation, a commitment to quality and technical pioneering over the company’s long history. On the other, the name Siemens is associated with the excellence of its employees and their collaborative work, both present and future. It is exactly the combination of these two value systems that is reflected in our design for the new headquarters in Munich. It is standard practice to design optimal and flexible office space that can be organised and furnished as desired, but the real skill lies in combining these areas in such a way that staff naturally come into contact with each other and thus can converse more easily. Providing such a counterpoint strikes us as all the more important, given the virtual contact we experience in today’s internet-based world.
In fact our entire design takes its cue from the interconnection that takes place between the individual built elements and the storeys of the building.
