To ensure optimal acoustic conditions in the newly refurbished Stadtwerke Karlsruhe Headquarters, Scope Architects chose to install triangular Soft Cells Broadline and Standard ceiling panels especially optimised to enhance productivity and well-being.
In addition, the headquarters also offers conference rooms, business management and team-focused, communication-oriented areas in which the furniture is upholstered with Messenger, Clara and Casa, while curtains made from Map afford privacy to the glass meeting rooms.
The warm, efficient atmosphere is underlined by restrained white areas. These are accentuated by the introduction of muted blue tones and wooden surfaces in plain oak. Furthermore, a network of light-lines runs through the offices ensuring even illumination throughout.
Stadtwerke Karlsruhe supplies energy, drinking water and heating systems to consumers. The company’s redesigned headquarters, which were originally built in 1977, are on Daxlanderstraße in the south-western German city.
