TOK 16

Tokheim - currently TSG Solutions - was looking for a location for their new offices and warehouse where they could unite both the subsidiary of Bladel (NL) and the existing branch in Turnhout (BE). In a new development of the IOK, around the corner of the existing office, they found the ideal place for this realization. A three-storey open office building was designed with an adjoining stacked warehouse and workshops. The warehouse and workshops were wrapped in dark steel fa├žade cladding which continues in a plinth underneath the offices. On top of this plinth a contrasting clear white transparent rhythmic volume was placed. The white cantilevered terraces of the office building provide natural sun protection, allowing storey-height windows in an energy-friendly way. The office desks with an open view on the surroundings and neighboring fens make it an open and pleasant working environment.
