The new office of property developer Deutsche Wohnwerte is all about quality. It thereby reflects a core value of the company in dealing with its employees and partners.

Built values

Bahnstadt Heidelberg is the largest passive house settlement in Europe. It is also the home of property developer Deutsche Wohnwerte (DWW): The company’s offices moved onto the 4th floor of the newly constructed building ‘Colors’ by Eike Becker Architects. The premises were conceived to reach high standards in terms of quality, consistency and reliability – values ​​that are particularly important to DWW’s management in dealing with its employees and partners. A key design element is a sculptural, multi-functional wall that connects all areas, including otherwise separated clusters in the open office.

Feeling comfortable

Special focus was placed on establishing spaces for common use: the ‘fire side’ for conversations, ‘focus rooms’ for phone calls and seclusion, the library, the workshop (material archive) – to show figuratively that “building” is the métier – and above all the generous ‘casino,’ the break room for all employees. This is equipped with a sophisticated kitchen to ensure maximum convenience for the staff. Here, colleagues are encouraged to cook together or hold internal meetings.
