BAID stands for Borchardt / Architektur / Interior / Design and was founded in 2005 by architect Jessica Borchardt. The 30-strong team of architects, interior designers and product designers pursues a holistic approach by keeping a close eye on all aspects of the project during the planning process. From the cubature to interior design, all relevant aspects – in addition to the functional requirements – are given the necessary appreciation that characterises a thoroughly conceived and aesthetically convincing building project.
Curious about new things, creative and enthusiastic about details, BAID designs and implements projects across all service phases, primarily in the segments of housing and contemporary office and administration buildings. In doing so, BAID represents the users’ internal structures with good architecture, taking into account the requirements of a radically changing working world. The planners are aided by the innovative use of modern design technologies, combined with the valuable experience gained from successfully completed projects.
BAID has, for example, designed the new company headquarters for DB Schenker, ista and Innogy SE. The new ALDI Nord Campus in Essen is currently nearing completion.
BAID’s generous office premises in the historical “Hopfenburg” in Hamburg’s centrally located Kontorhaus District extends over three floors. Part of the space is taken up by the exhibition room of Galerie Borchardt. The renowned art gallery, which has been run by Peter Borchardt since 1997, mediates between art and architecture with a project-oriented approach. It brings together artists, architects and clients — often resulting in the joint realisation of new projects.
