Doppelmayr Office Building, Wolfurt
The entrance area and forecourt of the building are oriented towards the street and the opposite workshop. As described above, the south facade marks the transition from the nature reservation area to the commercial area. This interface also becomes a meeting place on the inside, namely via a development zone with built-in lounges. In the south lie the sunny meeting, employee and conference areas with a vie. On the north side, with ideal lighting conditions, are the areas to work in, with a view to the factory floor.
The spatial organisation of the office is fundamental for the entire building. The focus is on maximum flexibility. This is ensured by office areas without permanently installed walls or rooms, and by partitions that can be altered under a continuous ceiling height.
Furthermore, channelling through traffic through the work areas should be avoided. This function is handled by the south-facing access routes, which connects up to four departments. The office zones are exposed on both sides and always have a direct external reference on one side and the reference to the inner courtyard on the opposite side. The inner courtyard and the transparent ‘communication zone’ create a relationship to the rows of trees and the Reid.
