Architecture as dynamic as sports….
Germany’s ADIDAS Group’s headquarters  in Herzogenaurach ,has extended their Campus by two new buildings. This expansion is an important requirement for the company’s continued growth. The new office building provides office space for more than 2,000 employees. There will be an administrative building with an integrated restaurant for employees and another multi-storey car park.. This building project is estimated to be completed by the end of 2018.

The new 50,000 m² office building Arena, will be the future main entrance of the World of Sports. Its sense of openness and lightness makes an extremely good connection to the dynamic world of sport.

To underline the architectural idea of a sculptural building and to provide it with ecological sustainability concerning optimal daylight and shade conditions, an external customized sun and glare protection, diagrid brise soleil construction has been designed that takes the façade direction into account.  This is based on complex parameters and takes into consideration seasonally determined daylight

Flooded with light from all directions clearly opens up the building highlighting the fact that the Adidas Group sees no external limits for itself apart from those it sets.. The “Green Pavillion” offers space for about 5,000 people.
