DESCRIPTION
 
.
Swiss Re Next, Diener & Diener, Roger Diener, Zürich, Proplaning, Ernst Basler + Partner, Vogt LandschaftsarchitektenAfter ten years of planning and construction, Swiss Re is opening one of the most modern office buildings in Switzerland at its head office on Mythenquai in Zurich: Swiss Re Next. With the new building, realised by Diener & Diener Architects, Swiss Re underlines its commitment to Zurich, where the company was founded more than 150 years ago. The new offices set a milestone on the path towards Campus Mythenquai, where employees based in Switzerland will eventually be brought together. Swiss Re Next employs a new and agile workplace concept that fosters collaboration, dialogue and flexibility.

Swiss Re offers various options for flexible working that enable employees to shape their working day independently and choose the most suitable place to work. Open space office floors supported by state-of-the-art technology are key features of the new workplace concept. Swiss Re has already successfully implemented this concept worldwide in its offices in Sydney, Hong Kong, Munich, Bratislava and London.
A cost-efficient and effective work environment
Swiss Re Next, Diener & Diener, Roger Diener, Zürich, Proplaning, Ernst Basler + Partner, Vogt LandschaftsarchitektenSwiss Re Next sets a milestone in the ongoing development of Campus Mythenquai, where Swiss Re will eventually bring together employees based in Switzerland. This central location supports various objectives of the company: The new workplace concept no longer has assigned work stations and significantly improves the use of available office space. Energy consumption per workplace has been cut by 80% compared to the previous building. Lake water is used to heat and cool the building with heat pumps. The short distances at Campus Mythenquai furthermore generate synergies.

With its central location on Mythenquai, Swiss Re Next represents a key feature of the cityscape of Zurich. Swiss Re lives up to this responsibility with a future-proof building realised by Diener & Diener Architects.
