New weisenburger headquarters in Karlsruhe
designed by Tadao Ando
Tadao Ando's fourth construction in Germany is the headquarters of the weisenburger group of companies. The probably most famous architect from Japan and Pritzker Prize winner Tadao Ando designed the office building on Ludwig-Erhard-Allee in Karlsruhe.
The new-build provides 650 workstations and 15 meeting rooms spread across seven floors, a cafeteria, a fitness studio and a roof terrace. An underground garage with three levels provides the required amount of parking spaces. The building also has architectural highlights such as a large open staircase in the inner courtyard and cantilevered concrete staircases in the foyer and skylounge.
