BAID // Borchardt / Architektur / Interior / Design
With focus on exclusive residential buildings as well as modern office and business developments, BAID has realized numerous projects from the Hamburg office and all over Germany. Jessica Borchardt and her 25 employees strive to implement custom-made architecture which is consistently continued in interior design. Our planning process is an ongoing conversation with all stakeholders and our highest goal is to realize all requirements with quality and functionality, as well as economic efficiency and sustainability.
Years of experience in competitions and the implementation of complex architectural projects with innovative design make for a reliable partnership: we value our clients highly and therefore have maintained long-lasting business relations with established developers and housing associations. Our latest projects include the headquarters for Ista International GmbH, DB Schenker AG, Gruner+Jahr and Aldi Nord in Essen and the renovation of Lufthansa Industry Solutions in Hamburg.
The beginning of everything is the development of a guiding idea. This is achieved by taking into account all project-related framework conditions. We strive to do justice to the special character of the place and the purpose of the building. Our aim is to achieve the highest degree of simplicity and to have a plausible and appropriate result. Good proportions and an obvious combination of aesthetic features are just as important in this context as the consideration of technical aspects. When planning corporate spaces, internal structure and philosophy are reflected in the architectural design as well as ground plans and
interior. Recent projects range from business headquarters and residential buildings, to monument conservation projects, as well as interior and product
design. Our areas of expertise: Business & Office Development Corporate Architecture Residential Development Interior Design & Product Design Energy Efficiency & Sustainability.
BAIDs remarkable building design won 1st prize in a competition for the new headquarter of Aldi Nord, one of the world’s leading discount store chains. The campus offers work space for up to 800 employees and includes a day care center and several sports facilities. Key aspects of the design idea are communication hubs throughout the complex, and the large plaza with a glass roof in the center of the main building. Visualisation: EYEbee visual media
The use of solar energy was a key factor in the design concept of the new quarter.
At the end of an optimizing process this unique roofscape was developed.
In the further energetic, sustainable and economic considerations, the focus was on a combination of natural building materials, reduced technology and largely passive air conditioning.
The residential buildings themselves are characterized by a high quality of living, pleasant proportions and plenty of open space for common use.
The high rise was designed as a 20-storey office building with more than 22.000 m² of gross floor space. It allows for more than 900 employees, creating a spacious work area with co-working spaces, communication hubs, think tanks and conference rooms. On top it offers a wide range of recreational areas, such as a gym, staff restaurants and cafés as well as a rooftop terrace. Visualisation: EYEbee visual media
