Raiffeisen Egg I Project Competition 2nd Place
The new Raiffeisen office presents itself as an advisory bank. An open concept floor plan with the reception at its heart and half-open rooms enable good visibility and openness to customers.
The idea behind this project takes inspiration from the Schröder & Co. silk factory from the 1900’s, which had a lasting impact on the community. Out of this textile past the theme "Silk" becomes the starting point for our design.
Offset electrolytically copper-plated steel tubes of various diameters symbolize shiny silk threads of raw silk. The different diameters of the rods and the staggered arrangement create a playful and three-dimensional surface. A large-format herringbone parquet makes the room optically wider and plays with the scale. The walls in the waiting room and the consultation rooms are covered with acoustic elements and textile wallpaper made of raw silk.
The floor plan was adjusted in favor of an open, bright and flexible sequence of rooms - trapped rooms were eliminated. The workplaces are separated by switchable glass walls in order to supply the reception hall with daylight on both sides. The hybrid use of space creates great flexibility, as each workstation can also serve as a consultation area.
