Microsoft headquarters Munich

Delivering 'office of the future'

Microsoft's new headquarters in Munich are part of the tech giant’s European strategy to create state-of-the-art workplaces for its employees.

Key information

Location: Munich

Date started: 2012

Completion date: 2016

Client’s requirements

Due to their current lease expiring in 2016, Microsoft planned to move their German headquarter from Unterschleißheim in the North of Munich to ‘Parkstadt Schwabing’, which is located closer to the centre of Munich.

A new state of the art office has been created on 26,000m² floor space. The new office has 1,100 unassigned workplaces which follow the developed innovative working concept ‘work-life-flow’, multiple areas for formal and informal meetings, share and discussion zones, several outside terraces, and a ‘digital eatery’, i.e. a publicly accessible café. A highlight of the building is the atrium, an open area with large LED displays hanging from the ceiling (the biggest interactive displays in Europe), showing the buzz within the Microsoft Office World, but also making events a unique experience.
