Administrational building with Conference Centre, Café, Fire Station, Laloratories an Workshops for BP Europe SE at the refinery in Lingen, Germany.
The new building at a safe distance from the refinery (technicians cycle back and forth) is nestled in a pine forrest and houses administration, laboratories, workshops and a BP fire station (with training tower).
The BOLLES+WILSON design manifests BP‘s ‚One Team‘ philosophy. Open plan offices on three levels surround a spectacular light filled atrium. Animated by ‚team oriented break-out spaces‘, this communicative heart of the complex is crowned by a pyramid of triangular pneumatic pillows. An illuminated lighthouse that hovers above treetops, in dialogue with the nearby refinery.
Vertical sun louvers across the office and fire station facade echo BP logo colours as does the colourful and dynamic interior landscape.
