DAIMLER STUTTGART-VAIHINGEN 2016 — The Daimler AG is building an urban office area with around 100,000 square metres. Up to 4,200 jobs, a company restaurant, a food court, a health centre and a day-care centre as well as parking facilities will be created. The project takes up the image of a relaxed and planted city. From outside the volumes of the quarter seem to be placed independently of the street front, inside they follow a simple urban logic. They form a dense, precisely defined central urban space, the middle of the quarter. What is presented externally as a relaxed office park is internally a dense urban place, which is linked with the surroundings in a variety of ways. As part of a development area, the project will have a decisive impact on the new quarter and accelerate urban development as an outstanding location. The image of the green city opens up the opportunity to shape the cityscape and create identity for the location, despite the existing visible heterogeneity.
