Linotype’s Offices: The Old and New

Linotype switched buildings in early September 2008. The first row of images shows the old offices from the DuPont building in Bad Homburg, Germany. Removed from these incredible facilities, the new offices are in the Lilly building – also in Bad Homburg. The company formerly occupied one floor but is now separated into four floors. This has had the effect, in my opinion of course, to make it seem more divided and to make the communication between departments even more difficult. And oddly enough, despite being surrounded by glass walls, the halls are more empty and the place usually looks rather bare. In any case, the new cafeteria is significantly better than in the old one and we now have awesome coffee machines on each floor!
