New open space, literally

RheinLand Zukunftswerkstatt, Neuss

By establishing a “workshop for the future”, boosted by further investments in new open plan working environments, RheinLand is pushing ahead with its digitalisation plans. The futuristic building serves as a think tank and is the base station for the Digitalisation and Innovation team.

“Build the future for us!”

That’s what the architects were asked to do. The triangular, glass pavilion, which fits perfectly into the inner courtyard of the company’s headquarters in Neuss, is intended to symbolise the new era of digitalisation for the RheinLand Versicherungsgruppe. Taking the environment into account, much emphasis was placed on green roofs and living walls (“vertical gardens”).

Multifunctional think tank

The interior is multifunctional: everything can be moved, allowing the whole space to be used for presentations and events. In an open working atmosphere that encourages interaction and exchange, all employees have the opportunity to develop project-based solutions using agile methods. This is where creative minds gather to bring new ways of thinking, methods and workflows, processes, products and services to the entire insurance group. The creative workshop is therefore open to all employees and is centrally accessible via a passageway from the busy entrance and canteen area.
