After nearly three years of planning and construction, adesso, “Germany’s Best Employer 2020” (Great Place to Work®), has signed a deal for the New Eastside office complex in the Neumarkter Strasse business park. The contract guarantees adesso a spot as the anchor tenant for the next ten years. The industrial architecture in a spacious factory loft design supports sustainable mobility, as well as proven adesso corporate values such as team culture, communication and active collaboration. With the team at adesso Munich having more than doubled over the past four years, the Munich location ultimately outgrew its previous sites in Haidhausen and Neubiberg. The new offices at Streitfeldstrasse 25 bring employees from both these locations together under one roof.

The IT service provider adesso is once again expanding its location in Munich. To manage the company’s rapid growth, the Munich offices of adesso recently moved into a space measuring roughly 13,000 square metres at New Eastside Munich. With over 21,000 square metres, the new complex is one of the largest developments in the eastern half of Munich.
adesso has maintained a presence in Munich for 20 years and plans to continue expanding in the city. Niklas Spitczok von Brisinsik, a business informatics specialist, has been with adesso Munich since the very start. As the location’s manager, he is in charge of the local offices and sees a tremendous need for digitalisation in Bavaria’s state capital: “Our advice and support in IT projects is in high demand, not only in public administration, but also in our core industries: banks and insurance companies. The automotive segment, which is particularly strong in southern Germany, is also an important growth segment for us, of course.” adesso’s customer portfolio in Munich is accordingly diverse and includes BayernLB, the Bavarian State Ministry of Justice, the city of Munich, Münchener Rück and other leading insurance companies, GEMA and ZPÜ, and the biggest names in the German automotive industry.
In addition to its work for the business sector, adesso is also dedicated to making a difference in society through charitable projects. The company’s various activities promote digital skills in society with a focus on the next generation, which it introduces to the world of computing at IT workshops, school sponsorships and partnerships with educational institutions. Twice a year, for example, adesso offers young students in Munich an opportunity to spend a semester gaining practical IT experience in a variety of project roles as part of the adesso rotating internship. Today the programme is a proven model for recruiting IT talents.
To ensure that sought-after IT specialists feel at home at adesso Munich, the company put great emphasis on designing an inspiring atmosphere intended to promote communication and exchange among teams, including appealing conference and event rooms, an employee bistro with a variety of lunch offerings, quiet spaces for independent work and a parent-child office. A meditation and prayer room, open meeting areas and forums for team stand-ups and joint activities, as well as communicative team islands for focusing on project work, are also part of the amenities at the new location. As part of its commitment to climate friendliness, adesso encourages its local employees to use public transport and commute by bike, rounding off the mobility concept with a ground-floor bike room featuring a service station, showers and changing rooms. The office complex also includes an underground car park, which relieves the pressure on the parking situation in the immediate vicinity.
For site manager Niklas Spitczok von Brisinski, a pleasant working atmosphere and a corporate culture that builds on shared experiences are crucial aspects: “We put stock in close collaboration between people, and in shared experiences and achievements. The design and spatial concept of our new location offers the ideal conditions for creative exchange and for more personal interaction and teamwork – as soon as the situation permits. What’s more, the new space allows us to accommodate in-house project teams for quite a few of our customers, who have tended to cut back on office space as a result of Covid.”
One real highlight, and a symbol of the value of communication at the new offices, is adesso Munich’s “Interaction Room”. The space on the fourth floor rises a prominent 8 meters into the sky. In this creative multimedia room with customisable whiteboard walls, adesso works with its customers to develop the software specifications that will shape the digitalisation projects of the future (see picture).
