Modern Premises for Smarter Working
Brückner Architects have developed these ultra-modern premises in close cooperation with their client Getzner Werkstoffe, a leading specialist in the field of vibration isolation and protection. The building has a separate conference floor, with the ‘Piz Buin’ room for large conferences together with the smaller ‘Watzmann’ room, complete with an adjoining roof terrace. The architects have organized the floor plan following the tried and tested ‘Smart Working’ concept. Designated areas which serve both as a meeting place and as a retreat for undisturbed work are integrated into the office space, each attached to a small meeting room.
The alpenglow served as an inspiration for the color scheme. The inimitable orange tint of mountains in the evening light adds dashes of color throughout the building while simultaneously strengthening the client’s corporate identity: the color orange is part of the company logo. Alpine flair has also found its way into the cafeteria, where employees can enjoy their lunch break in an environment that combines natural wood and warm hues. The rustic wooden entrance door and the stone façade further add to the Alpine feel. The energy for heating and cooling the building is generated by an efficient and sustainable heat pump and by using groundwater. This process takes into account the environmental protection concept practiced at Getzner which is based, among other things, on the use of groundwater instead of drinking water in production.
