Adidas reveals headquarters expansion

  • Comment

Sports brand Adidas has chosen Behnisch Architects to mastermind an extension to its headquarters in Bavaria

The Stuttgart-based studio won an international design competition to enlarge the world-famous clothes designer’s Herzogenaurach campus.

Almost 200 firms entered the contest which saw Vienna’s Caramel Architects come second.

Behnisch’s scheme was ‘unanimously chosen’ by the 12-strong judging panel because its ‘openness and airiness’ complimented the ‘dynamics of sport’ – according to a press statement.

The project will deliver two new office buildings with space for up to 3,600 Adidas employees.

Adidas chief executive Herbert Hainer said: ‘We are delighted to be able to offer our employees a working environment that is second to none.

‘Our goal is to create the best workplaces at the World of Sports, to attract talent from all over the world to Herzogenaurach.’

Recent additions to the headquarters site include the Laces building by Kadawittfeld Architecture and a company-owned day care centre.

A further design competition for an employee restaurant opened in June.
