Offices are so yesterday – the modern form of the workplace, so-called workspaces, are the new work model. In combination with a lobby, meeting rooms, work stations which are no longer personalised and even public cafés, office buildings are now meeting places for service providers, freelancers and other independent workers.
The fact that this collaborative mindset has given rise to a new architecture with new office concepts has prompted Munich-based publisher Callwey, together with its partners Baumeister, OFFICE ROXX, OFFICE DEALZZ and baunetz interior|design to award the first international architecture prize for intelligent workplaces and office buildings.
Building contractors, developers, architects and interior designers were invited to submit their projects. In addition to sophisticated architecture, an independent judging panel made up of experts and network decision-makers, planners and manufacturers will also award prizes, digitally and live, for the performance of the companies involved in the construction and their products.
The projects submitted in various categories include a building fitted with Cradle to Cradle certified Troldtekt acoustic panels. The client added perforations of various sizes to the natural grey panels fitted here. The LUI HOUSE in Herford, a four-storey building with office space, café, meeting spaces, lounge for events, co-working areas and a creativlab.
