Entory Home in Ettlingen, Germany by Behnisch, Behnisch & Partner, 1999

The following text and images are by Behnisch, Behnisch & Partner for their 1999 competition-winning project in Ettlingen, Germany, to be completed in 2002.

"Nova home", Nova Data AG‘s new headquarters, will be erected on a site which was formerly occupied by military barracks. The representative site is located at the northern periphery of Ettlingen, addressing the access roads to the city center.

It affords beautiful views of the charming environment - the meadows and soft, rolling hills of the Black Forest.

The client wants a building with a variety of different spaces which are suitable both for teamwork and for individual work, as well as for any future working modes. In addition, spaces are to be created where people can meet, communicate and exchange information, thus strengthening the feeling of "belonging together".
