DESIGN STRATEGIES

Allianz HQ, Stuttgart

SquareOne joins RKW Architektur + and Urban Agency for this invited competition proposal for Allianz Headquarters in Stuttgart. We come up with a stacking scheme that sits on a checkerboard pattern, creating courtyards and gardens at both sides of the long plot. We populate the facades with multi-storey vertical gardens, which always provide a typical office plan with an escape towards nature, the city and the horizon.
