BYK-Chemie GmbH - Converting an old warehouse into new working environments
As part of an extensive revitalization, bkp has converted an old warehouse into a modern working environment for BYK-Chemie GmbH, a company part of the ALTANA Group. Inside the formerly vacant industrial style building one can now find an innovative multi-space that promotes communication, interaction and also the recreation of the employees.
BYK is a chemical company and produces chemical additives to refine product surfaces. These liquid additives became the central theme of bkp’s design concept, which not only considers the interior architecture of the building, but also the exterior of the new campus. The new corporate design combines the organic shape of the BYK logo, the colors of the corporate identity and the company’s product range into interior design concept of the new workspace. Flowing shapes, structures and levels that overlap can also be found outside and give the impression that the exterior and interior merge into one another almost without being noticed. The large window areas common to industrial halls allow an unrestricted view of the campus and support the feeling of being close to the surrounding nature inside the building.
