Kärcher Headquarters – Winnenden
The project to expand the headquarters of Kärcher, in Winnenden, Germany, near Stuttgart, involved the construction of new office areas, a conference hall, a number of smaller conference rooms, and a cafeteria. Agglotech terrazzo, color SB113, was used for the interior flooring and for the stairs.
Kärcher, a multinational organization known for its professional cleaning systems, commissioned Reichel Schlaier Architects to design the new expansion, for which Agglotech’s marble-cement agglomerate was selected as cladding for the stairs and as flooring for the main lobby and for a number of other rooms. SB113 Black Multicolor terrazzo, from our Classico line, was chosen for its distinctive interplay of colors created by the varying-sized marble aggregate used. This product, which faithfully reproduces the beauty of the natural materials used, played a key role in this project, lending both dynamism and color consistency to the building as a whole. The pairing of black marble cement with yellow-hued elements, which reflect the identifying color of the company, has given the headquarters a sense of welcome while downplaying the austerity of the building’s function.
