Fichte45, Nuremberg

The architect Sven Lechner displays tangible enthusiasm for his project: “We started off with a former miner’s lamp factory, our architectural expertise and a vision. The result is a place where we couldn’t feel more at ease,” says Sven Lechner, founder and proprietor of nyx | Architekten in Nuremberg describing his passion project, Fichte45. His plans combine four areas that complement one another to form an extraordinary business location. “fichtework” is not only Lechner’s own suite of offices but is also open to others: co-working spaces, meeting rooms and quiet rooms on two levels are used by him and by temporary co-workers or long-term tenants. It is a similar situation with the “fichtewerkstatt” on the ground floor, which provides space for 50 people for workshops, seminars or presentations and is particularly flexible in its utilisation options. The spacious workshop and the open plan office are fitted out with the Rossoacoustic PAD Q 600 Plus and the Lighting PAD Q 900. “The modern acoustic luminaires are a real benefit for our high workshop – in terms of both optics and acoustics. The LEDs immerse the room in a pleasant light and are also energy-saving," says Sven Lechner. They also ensure balanced room acoustics and pleasant lighting at the workplaces and in the meeting rooms. On the first floor, the bright, light-flooded space concept includes four spaces for overnight accommodation in the lovingly furnished apartments in the “fichtehome”. At the heart of every office there needs to be a place where people can come together and foster a sense of community: all those working here can gather in the communal kitchen, the “fichteheart”. The entire project stands out thanks to its versatility, openness and great love of detail.
