Corporate Architecture

The Gärnternei Raff project in Stuttgart, was completed in May 2022 and thanks to the new building, the flower shop and the production of Gärtnerei Raff are finally united in one place.

The replacement building on a total planning area of around 3,250 m² with a greenhouse complex and ancillary rooms (salesroom, workshop and preparation areas, production), as well as parking spaces, came from a single source, including the deconstruction work – design planning, building application, execution planning, construction management and the foundations for all trades. At the same time, the new building also provided an ideal opportunity to optimize processes, logistics and, of course, create a new design. In the interior design,

the focus was very much on creating a friendly and above all natural ambiance. A large display window between the workshop and salesroom ensures an unobstructed view in both directions. The new concept and planning process also involved a redesign of the brand core. The striking weathering steel façade is far more than just a functional part of the building envelope; it serves as a means of communication and supports the repositioning of the brand. Targeted corporate architecture as an expression of the company's identity.
