Wiel Arets Architects completes glass office cubes

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK + DATA] European practice Wiel Arets Architects has completed a glass walled office complex in Germany

Six separate buildings make up the 13,500m² office complex in Ravensburg. These individual buildings are based on the proportions and dimensions of existing urban villas within the local area.

The office cubes are interconnected and joined by a transparent glazed outer skin at the ground floor which gives the impression of a ‘singular identity to the project as well as allowing the individual buildings to be distinguished’.

The ground floor houses a café, a conference centre and walled gardens with the office spaces located above.
