Modern head office in black and white

Thanks to the creativity of the interior designers, function and design are perfectly combined in this office and workshop complex. The varying designs of the acoustic panels give each room its own identity.

The new office of CF Automation Parts GmbH & Co. KG is characterised by the contrast of black and white and is in keeping with the corporate identity of the Koblenz-based company, which specialises in drive, vacuum, valve and measuring technology, among other things. The 760 m2 two-storey building designed by deinearchitektin Alexandra Faßbender has plenty of space for presentation, exhibition, relaxation and work areas as well as for workshops, storerooms and garages.

The ground floor is bathed in light thanks to large floor-to-ceiling windows. The open-plan foyer accommodates reception, presentation and exhibition rooms as well as a few work stations. Workshops, storerooms and auxiliary areas are adjoined at the back. The top floor, which contains more office areas, as well as a seminar area and lounges, can also be hired out as a self-contained unit and accessed via a separate side entrance.

Glass-panelled offices for greater transparency

As glass features strongly for partitioning individual areas in the interiors, the complex as a whole has a welcoming, open and transparent feel. This also serves to optimise communication and cooperation between employees. To make the environment even more pleasant for the team, there is also a comfortable lounge area with kitchenette and large table, as well as table football. A large terrace on the top floor also offers space to relax outside.

Brass is a major component of the colour and material design. This material, originally used in valve technology, also features on the door and window frames, for example.

Acoustic panels as a key design element

Acoustics play an important role in the new open-plan building. To this end, all areas feature Troldtekt acoustic panels, which meet the highest design standards and also perfectly complement the design concept thanks to their varied structure.

The selected Troldtekt line, Troldtekt line design and Troldtekt tilt line design solutions in various colours ranging from light grey to black perfectly match the light floors and the walls, which are painted white, grey and black. The design is rounded off with integrated ceiling lighting which provides both direct and indirect light.
