A living room in the heart of the city
In particular, all visitors were to feel welcome in the twelve new consultation rooms at the Sparkasse main office. Consequently, each of them was given its own theme. In the “Black Forest” room, for example, the red tone of the wooden wall shingles together with a matching carpet, classic-traditional wooden furniture and a modern cuckoo clock create a rustic cosiness.
However, Sparkasse Bühl wants to be a place of encounter not only for its customers, but also for the citizens of Bühl. The lounge areas are therefore intentionally freely accessible and designed as open intermediate zones. In line with the idea of a “living room in the city”, an event area including an event kitchen has also been created on the ground floor. The counterpart to this is the Forum on the third floor. Flexible furniture including glass whiteboards, seminar chairs with desk trays and multifunctional sit-stand tables ensure maximum freedom here – for seminars, as a meeting room or as an arena for agile working.
With this changeable usage concept and the new feel-good areas, Sparkasse Bühl’s new main office isn’t just presenting itself as the bank of the future. Its open and transparent architecture also consciously incorporates the surrounding infrastructure, thereby creating a new connection to the locals and their home region.
