adidas Corporate Headquaters – Herzogenaurach, Germany
It’s kind of funny when Google claims that they’re a ‘dog company’ that prefers you not bring your feline friends to work, but the fact is that the world’s top corporations are realizing the value of stimulating environments for their employees. Sneaker News has shown you a variety of looks from Nike’s Beaverton, Oregon campus, and though adidas maintains a US base of operations in Portland, the Brand with the Three Stripes’ home remains in Germany, where a new headquarters was built in Herzongenaurach. Imagined by design firm KINZO, the new adidas corporate HQ has the kind of massive expanse coupled with a clear orientation toward team collaboration that many could only dream of experiencing on a daily basis. It’s all supremely clean inside, the white, black and glass showing a clear Apple iGadget influence while a variety of adi-garb hangs from all corners. Does adidas now own the sneaker world’s best building? Click through to see more angles and let us know if you’d like to pull a 9-5 in these spaces.
The whole contemporary all-white look is cool, but I think Adidas overdid it. It almost looks like an insane asylum..
I agree, this office is too contemporary/cold for something like sports design. But then again, this is CORPORATE HQ. I assume all that goes on here are big deals and strictly "Business". but I dunno...it seems like robots work there...I don't see anything of personal affection/influence on any of the workstations/desks. I'd kill myself if I worked in an office that frowned upon sticky notes on your desk.
I run for adidas and am therefore often at the hq and you sure can believe that there IS a gym, outdoor park, running track, etc. Just not shown in the pic, why should they reveal their secrets?
BJ24 - Well thats because, its their headquarters..... They come up with ideas and have important meetings. So there's really no need for a whole bunch of sports gear around the office. Thats what footlocker n house of hoops are for
It's quite unusual to see the outside of the building look 10x less eye-pleasing as the inside, and the outside is damn nice so that's saying something.
Take out the Addidas gear and I see nothing that screams out sports to me. I thought I would see a great gym, track, and basketball court. Obvioulsy not everything is pictured but judging from these pics just looks like a fancy office with no privacy.
