The five-story headquarters of Edel comprises a two-story podium that houses a restaurant and an auditorium, and 3,300 sqm of office space in the three upper levels that cantilever over the river Elbe.

The architectural and interior design concept of the building is different from the usual office building: the transparency of the glass-framed ground floor extend the interiors to the terraces, creating a welcoming office building that features a seamless transition from the outdoors to the headquarters’ shared spaces.

By fostering spontaneous social interaction, the building’s design evokes the image of a ‘campus’ where people from all over the world have the chance to meet and engage with the company and its employees.
