Move to new Sky-Frame headquarters in Frauenfeld, Switzerland

Sky-Frame has invested CHF 35 million in its new company head office in Frauenfeld. The modern location, which covers a total area of over 15,000 square metres, has provided additional production capacity and increased vertical integration since the beginning of 2015. With this strategic decision, Sky-Frame has declared its long-term commitment to the development and production location in Frauenfeld, Switzerland. The company intends to use the new head office as a base to implement large-scale projects and continue to expand.


Sky-Frame has been writing its entrepreneurial success story for over 10 years now, convincing architects as well as builders and developers all over the world of the benefits of its Swiss-made products and their design possibilities in housing construction and large-scale projects. What began over 20 years ago with the pioneering work of five individuals as a small firm is today a medium-sized, rapidly growing company with more than 120 employees and an international reputation.


The new head offices designed by Peter Kunz
Peter Kunz, member of the Federation of Swiss Architects, was awarded the tender in an international architecture competition held in September 2012. The central architectural theme in Kunz’s convincing proposal was the creation of a new building that speaks to Sky-Frame’s company philosophy: providing a spacious, high-quality workspace for employees with a great deal of daylight and a clear connection to the outdoors, while eschewing hierarchies by placing office space and manufacturing space on the same level. “The new building is a symbolic representation of Sky-Frame’s company philosophy. The company itself was the primary inspiration for the atmospheric aspect of the design, because architecture is all about the spatial relationship between indoors and outdoors. The ability to eliminate the border between indoors and outdoors – this was the idea that we wanted to explore with the design of the new head office building,” explains Peter Kunz.
