"The 'House of Product' is an important milestone in our company's successful history. We want to grow sustainably and the new building is another step," said Maximilian Böck, Co-CEO of Marc O’Polo AG. "Thanks to cutting-edge, light-filled architecture and innovative workplace concepts, we are creating the ideal conditions for our employees—supporting creativity and inspiration in the development of our collections. We are also facilitating a central bundling of competencies and supporting shorter coordination channels. By doing so, we will gain more space on our existing campus, ensuring that we can continue to offer all departments an optimal working environment."
The "House of Product" was designed by Steidle Architekten Munich, and is scheduled to be ready for occupancy in autumn 2022. Sustainability is a major focus: The building will include a photovoltaic system and a heating/cooling system with a groundwater pump. Additional e-charging stations for electric vehicles will also be installed in the underground parking garage, supplementing the existing ones on campus. For the procurement, Marc O’Polo is taking care to source sustainable materials (including recycled materials) wherever possible and is using regional contractors for tradespeople.
“The new ‘House of Product’ site in Stephanskirchen adds another chapter to the success story of the premium brand Marc O’Polo," said 1st Mayor of Stephanskirchen Karl Mair. “With the new project, Marc O’Polo also demonstrates how innovative, sustainable corporate architecture can function; creating the ideal conditions for attractive work spaces."
