Products & Services

We develop the identity of our buildings as the result of location specifics and the intended function. We convert the client’s self-concept into Corporate Architecture. JSWD’s approach links conceptual clarity to the reserved utilization of formal means. Many of our structures distinguish themselves by an efficient and intelligent exterior combined with technical knowhow and design requirements. We are capable of dealing with all planning service levels. As the general planner, we perform all planning services required for a construction project incl. project control. We collaborate for all construction projects (domestic and foreign) with specialist engineers who are familiar with our methods. If required, our projects will comply with certification terms by DGNB, according to LEED and BREEAM, etc.

Schwarz Project Campus, Bad Friedrichshall, Germany

The layout of the new Project Campus in Bad Friedrichshall is similar to giant petals being placed in the distinct topography of the landscape. Notwithstanding the solitary impression the individual structures convey, they are positioned to encircle a common central green area. Staggered to resemble a terrace, the parking garage levels - some of which open toward the valley - are the base for the high-rise structures.

The positioning of the buildings with their rounded corners results in typical reception bays - each one destined to serve a specific purpose viz. as main entrance, service access or staff entrance - and each is assigned unmistakable and attractive priorities. The main entrance provides access to the conference facilities and the employee cafeteria. The current plans call for the realization of the first construction phase (approx. 3,000 jobs) of the state of the art campus toward the middle of the next decade.
