An existing office building of the traditional company “Klosterfrau”, built in the 1970s out of exposed concrete, was expanded and modernised in terms of thermal insulation, air-conditioning and lighting. With this project, a special focus was put on maintaining the basic structures and translating the aesthetics of the exposed concrete façade appropriately into a modern look.
An extra office storey was put on top of the building as a lightweight construction, cable arrangements were routed into raised floors and steelwork ramp systems were added. Terraces and newly designed exterior facilities complete the added value for users and visitors.
