Stadler plant engineering
In the beginning was the universe. The name for a beautiful, orderly, virtuous world. In this world, a monk once placed his bureau over the unpolished wood of the first desk to protect the precious (parchment and writings). The bureau was a cloth-covered office table and the epitome of quality and care. Today, the cultural environment in the office is dominated by economic rationality and increasingly collides with the original idea of the “office” and the needs of the employees. Yet quality in the human environment is the strongest motivating factor – closely followed by care in handling. Incentive enough for Stadler Anlagenbau, the specialist in the waste disposal and recycling industry, to create 850 square metres of new space with the general contractor Reisch. Space for a new working world where work and regeneration are in harmony.
The future of the office
Flowing transitions. Office, co-working spaces, fluid spaces, home office: the working world is on the move – both structurally and spatially. The blending of spaces and the dissolution of the boundaries between work and leisure are crying out for transformation. This affects architecture, space and furniture in equal measure. For Stadler, we have developed a “New Work” concept that optimises the atmosphere of collaboration, increases the efficiency and well-being of employees and promotes individual working methods.
Open and closed office spaces – flexible and modular. Communal and retreat spaces. An exhibition area and seating niches for cultivated lingering. We have given the Stadler headquarters in Altshausen a new character. With a lot of wood, we have created space for a lot of warmth. With glass, we have ensured clarity and transparency. And created exciting contrasts with concrete and dark elements. Friendly expansiveness, which also picks up on the atrium and floods the core of the building with light. A well thought-out guidance system provides even more orientation. After all, you want to explore everything …

Bright, clear and surprising. We also redesigned the refectory and enlarged it at the same time. An essential style element: a slatted ceiling that simultaneously serves as noise protection and perfect acoustic control. Wood as a feel-good material – plus the interplay of dark and light tones. Separate areas provide variety in the heights and create structure in the room. Here you can sufficiently recharge your batteries.
Clear communication for quick orientation. The guidance system is an integral part of the architecture of the Stadler building and contributes to the visual identity of the building and its spaces. Reduced, simple, quick to grasp. And so beautiful that you’ll be happy to do a few more rounds.
Eye-catcher of a special kind: the recycling cycle of a PET bottle and other exciting topics have taken their place directly in the foyer, taking up the topic of waste disposal in an artistic and playful way. In addition, there are lots of insights. For example, how many countries use high-performance sorting technology from Stadler. The answer is revealed immediately below – when you open the info boxes. And there are also explanatory films. Just be curious!
