Soccer Bundesliga club

In Leipzig, the new headquarters of a renowned German soccer Bundesliga club is being built on an area of ​​14,500 m². Upon completion by the end of 2025, the building will offer workspaces for 250 employees across four floors.
The architectural concept is characterized by open spaces and multifunctional units that promote interaction, exchange, and communication. Particularly notable is the central feature of the building: an open atrium at its core, topped with a glass roof and connected by a staircase landscape leading upwards.
Green Headquarters

in Focus

In the design and execution of the new office building, significant emphasis was placed on environmentally friendly, sustainable construction methods. The structure and interior of the building were largely constructed using wood. Solar panels are installed on the facade and roof to generate energy, contributing to significant reductions in CO2 emissions by saving weight and materials. Additionally, rooftop greenery and a public climate forest improve the local microclimate and serve as water reservoirs for the city.

The engineering for the timber construction of the innovative new building was carried out by WIEHAG Timber Construction. The structure, consisting of columns, beams, and prefabricated timber ribbed ceilings made of cross-laminated timber and glulam beams, remains largely visible in the final use. Free-standing staircase constructions in the atrium and a timber frame structure for supporting the generous open spaces were manufactured, like all structural components, at the WIEHAG facility in Altheim. Overall, WIEHAG produced 2,250 m³ of timber components for the new headquarters.

Due to the high degree of prefabrication and smooth assembly, the timber construction was completed within 10 weeks.

    Design Concept
    The design is based on the concept of a campus that encompasses both open office spaces and communal areas where employees can gather. Spaces that enhance employee well-being and foster the exchange of knowledge, innovation, and creativity.
