Vaillant Group Staff Canteen

In Remscheid, the new building of a sophisticated company restaurant was constructed in the middle of the company premises of. For this attractive project, Werner Sobek was commissioned, among other things, with the potential analysis of the regenerative energy sources on site and the thermal building physics. The focus of the energy concept for the building was on sustainability.

Sustainable Energy Concept & High Quality of Stay

The canteen, including adjoining rooms, is designed for 900 to 1,000 meals a day with about 400 seats. In addition, there is outdoor seating and a conference room for 30 people each. The facade of the building was made of wood – the successful combination of exposed concrete and laminated wood beams ensures a high quality of stay. The filigree green canopy also invites people to linger.
