A building designed by 3XN. The entire building is situated on an elevated base. The flower-shape of the building solves the well-know problem associated with huge office buildings: they can often seem rather confusing, difficult to navigate in and thus easy to get lost in. Here, the flower-shape divides the building into smaller sections and in the core of the flower the individual loops are interconnected creating a natural centre. Compared to a regular massive and dominating box-shaped building volume, the flower-shape makes for an interesting change and brings a lighter and airier sense of space to the neighbourhood.
The building is constructed with a deep focus on sustainability at all levels from design to construction, choice of materials and lifespan. Thus for one, the level of energy consumption is reduced to a mere minimum close to zero by controlling the inflow of light, by heat regulation through the use of an active façade with solar screening, by angling the building according to daylight and by a strategic orientation of the interior office space also accordingly.
