Interior design of trend-setting office spaces
Individual capsules as a workspace or place of retreat – for the headquarters of Bosch AS in Schwäbisch Gmünd, the Ganter Group realised the interior design of the office space spread over 10,000 m². The new headquarters of Robert Bosch Automotive Steering GmbH in Schwäbisch Gmünd consists of two gently curved buildings, four and six stories high respectively. These buildings comprise 10,000 m² of light-flooded offices and meeting rooms. The floor plan of the building and the respective stories are given structure by triangular, specially modified spaces called capsules. These capsules, on the one hand, offer more spaces to retreat and are also adjusted to the unique shape of the building, cleverly dividing the sophisticated floor plan into three rectangular areas each. The Ganter Group realised the interior designed by the Alexander Fehre studio in Stuttgart.
During the interior construction of the eight floors, which differ in their choice of colours and materials, the logistical handling and assembly on site posed a particular challenge. For the interior fittings, Ganter realised seating islands, closed office capsules, wall cupboards, locker cupboards and standing tables with a cladding attached to the ceiling lighting. For the 24 office capsules spread over a total of 8 floors, a template to the scale of 1:1 was produced specially for the support of the up to 150 kg heavy, 300 cm high and 16 mm thick laminated safety glass panes with an arc length of 150 cm. This ensured that the glass panes could be transported quickly and without damage within the building. The ceiling lighting of the generous seating islands was integrated into the furniture; powder-coated metal tubes and luminaire casings give the impression that the seating islands are illuminated not by ceiling luminaires but by oversized freestanding light
