High ceilings, open-plan layouts and light-flooded rooms have transformed previously practical but dull inner-city workspaces. This change has caused a real boom in loft architecture in international cities. But even in smaller and medium-sized towns conversions of old factory facilities into offices or residential units are also popular. A company called Wortmann from Detmold in Germany has shown that even a virtually windowless warehouse, never designed to accommodate people, can be remodeled to become a light-filled office. Wortmann is a footwear company, known for brands like “Tamaris”. Architect Andre Rohde was appointed to convert one of Wortmann’s outdated warehouses into a state-of-the-art office with a showroom. The crisply designed, versatile setting meets all the requirements of modern office spaces. The castors on Wilkhahn’s “IN”, “Stand-up” and “Stitz” chairs are also perfect matches.
