Schüco One Headquarters

Outstanding New Façade—Mid-Rise Winner

2023 Vitruvian Design Competition

Architect: 3XN Copenhagen AS, DS-Plan, Oehme & Partner

Schüco One is the headquarters of Schüco, which has been designed by 3XN architects. The modern office building boasts a dynamic design with open workspaces that encourage communication and demonstrates what can be achieved today from a technical point of view using sustainable and pioneering façade systems.

With seven floors above ground and 7200 square meters of usable space, the new building boasts a grand foyer on the ground floor, while open and modern office spaces without traditional corridors can be found throughout the rest of the building. A glass bridge spanning five floors connects the new building with the old building. Together, the two buildings form the Schüco One company headquarters. Beneath the bridge, the main entrance leads into the ground floor of the new building, which is open to the public, via the newly designed plaza. From the outside alone, the distinctive façade with its flowing units makes it clear that the company is future-proof. The alternating open and closed façade units give the building a dynamic appearance, which continues inside. A large glass roof above the atrium floods the deepest parts of the building with daylight.
