Here the architectural studio of SSP SchürmannSpannel AG has succesfully developed the concept of a communication building and works now in a heterogeneous office landscape. Open work areas for interdisciplinary planning teams promote informal exchange in the processing of complex construction projects. Ten meeting rooms facilitate focused meetings or creative workshops with clients and planning partners. Single offices, group offices, communication lounges and retreating areas complement the mix of the working environment, and offer employees the opportunity to choose between concentration and communication according to their current tasks.

The Blue Office is oriented towards the future and designed for flexible use. Six independent rental units can be used individually or together. The open, modular office areas allow an individual partition by users and can react flexible to varying requirements. The southern part of the building can equally be used flexible as open office space, seminar space or exhibition space with an outstanding event location with a beautiful view of the Ölbachtal set. Service areas with circulation areas, adjoining rooms and spacious meeting rooms complement the office space.
