Ascendis Pharma is a biopharmaceutical company with locations in Copenhagen, Heidelberg and Palo Alto. The company’s core product is a powerful, flexible technology platform called TransCon that makes it possible to develop new therapeutics. We were commissioned to design offices for Ascendis Pharma’s research facilities in Heidelberg.
The interior design establishes a connection between the laboratory and office workspaces, while at the same time referencing the building’s architecture. Light, clean elements combined with natural materials such as wood and organic fabrics create a bright, inviting atmosphere. In addition to workspaces, meeting rooms of various sizes, and small alcoves for quick breaks, we also designed the kitchen area to serve as an alternative, communal workspace and as a location for informal interaction.
