Hackforth head office. herne
RKW completed a new headquarters for the Hackforth Holding head office in Herne. This compact building was designed to replace the directly adjacent headquarters which had become outdated and too small for future use. Consequently, RKW came up with the idea for a clearly structured three-storey building featuring two central courtyards. The new building is accessed by a central foyer characterised by a striking staircase with V-shaped pillars. This communications area features transparent meeting, exhibition and waiting areas and also provides access to the inner courtyards. Upon completion, the old building was demolished and replaced with new outdoor areas.
