OBJECT CAMPUS is a new milestone in the corporate history of OBJECT CARPET. What were the basic ideas of this project?
Butz: Everyone is talking about "New Work" and "work-life balance". We want to create conditions for successful implementation of these concepts. Work and private life are interweaving with each other more and more. My wish is that you can feel at work as at home: you feel as comfortable as in the circle of your friends – maintaining collegiality, mutuality and communality. OBJECT CAMPUS should be an inspiring place with a campus atmosphere – a welcoming place with (working) spirit that creates identity and a positive influence on the society.
Hirth: My concern – put in a nutshell: to create a building of a timeless and attractive design – referring to the beautiful landscape of the Swabian Alb. A place that promotes the communicative processes, not only at work, but also during breaks and leisure time.
Butz: My intention was to create a positive and beautiful office area where everybody feels well. Communication and collaboration are the focus of designing of offices adaptable to individual requirements. Ways of working and use of office rooms are continuously changing. We are fully award of this fact and well prepared for this. Concerning the sustainable technical infrastructure: of course, there are parking spaces for bicycles, cars and recharging stations for electro-mobility available.
