Within 10 years, the EASTSITE technology location at Mannheim City Airport has developed into a sought-after address for companies from the information and communication technology, biotechnology and medical technology sectors. Only a few sites are still available in the seven-hectare area. The success of the location is also based on an architecturally appealing development concept, which gives the premises a very special campus character. On the corner plot at Konrad-Zuse-Ring/Harrlachweg, the new company headquarters of an industry 4.0 company is being built according to the plans of Eike_Becker Architekten. With its curved shape and metal façade, the building reflects the company's claim to innovation architecturally.
Corporate Architecture embodies the self-image of a company to the outside world and thus creates a spatial experience of brand identity for clients and employees. Corporate architecture goes far beyond the purely functional requirements of modern company headquarters. In view of the fact that commercially used real estate accounts for around 10 percent of all buildings, this gives rise to a special urban responsibility. Because corporate architecture shapes the face of our cities and the quality of our living space to a large extent. In addition to the representative effect for the company, it should also offer added value for the architectural appearance of a location.
