Development Center for Laser Technology Schramberg

On March 6th, Trumpf celebrated the opening of the extension to the existing Laser Factory in Schramberg near Freiburg / Germany. The Development Center for Laser Technology is a two-story building, measuring 52 x 52 meters. The lower level is partially embedded into a sloping ground contour. Laser testing laboratories, a climate control chamber, and the building’s utility services – functions that need little or no daylight – are found on that floor. On the upper level are office and conference rooms. The façade is made out of laser-cut aluminum fins that run the entire height of the building, lending structure to the façade. An atrium on the office level provides additional daylight and space for leisure.
