The Aarau architectural firm Schneider & Schneider Architekten ETH BSA SIA AG has been awarded the prestigious European architecture prize «best architects» for their project «National Grid Company Headquarters». Swissgrid moved into the new premises in Aarau in June one year ago.
The headquarters of Swissgrid, close to the railway station, make an impression not only due to their high architectural quality – the office building has been designed as a solution tailor-made for Swissgrid's operations. The open office concept provides employees with a working environment matching their respective tasks. The local architects Schneider & Schneider spent five years planning and building the project, for which they have now been honoured with a prestigious architectural award.
The Swissgrid building is a showpiece project in the property portfolio of the owner CSA Real Estate Switzerland, an investment group of the Credit Suisse Investment Foundation. Apart from the flexibility that the building provides in its use, the Minergie-P energy certificate and greenproperty Gold quality seal reinforce the long-term value of the property.
