The firm’s name, IN_NO_CA_D, stands for interdisciplinary, nonconformist, caring, and distinctive. Among the firm’s recent successful projects is its work on the C&P Immoblilien AG corporate headquarters. In 2013 the chairmen of the real estate company, C&P Immobilien AG, decided to acquire a property of 43.000 m² in an upcoming area in Graz, Austria, with a mission to not only create a new dynamic district for living and working, but one that also realized their new headquarters. The firm’s vision was to have an office building that offers their staff, approximately 60 employees, a holistic working environment. In 2015 an invited architecture competition was announced, and INNOCAD Architecture won with its innovative, cube-shaped building that provides flexible working space, open communication areas, as well as a sustainable energy and employee’s wellbeing concept. Founded in 2006, C&P develops, sells and manages apartments. Buyers are mostly investors who are leasing out the properties. Since 2011, C&P has been a market leader for investment property management in the private customer segment in Austria. Today the new C&P headquarters, which is located at the highest traffic entrances to city, brings clarity and conciseness to this emerging district. From an urban planning perspective, it exudes individuality within the context of the challenge of integrating a flat transition area linked to an industrial environment, thus creating a new landmarked space. Therefore, the main goal was to create an authentic example of “Build Identity” for a young company in context within a growing district by transforming their brand icon, contextually and formally, consistently throughout the building elevation.
