Caruso St John Architects

The contemporary office building is not a building type generally known for its success in making good pieces of city. The practice has designed a number of office buildings in city centre situations that specifically address this question. The designs are characterised by a care in the construction of facades, and in the effort to make the maximum possible distinctiveness in the character of their interiors. The practices commissions in this building type have usually been the result of competitions held for important city centre sites.

The headquarters for the Bremer Landesbank, a new office building for 500 staff, is located on the Domshof in Bremen facing the cathedral. The building is due for completion in 2016.
