We were given the duty of designing an office building with eight floors. The client was looking for a model that encouraged the spirit of unity in the workplace. This was supposed to be the ideal working environment for 1,600 workers. The structure is naturally linked to the environment and showcases its curved surfaces which are partitioned by belts of glass on each level.
On the ground level are the lobby café and numerous stores. The basement has a large parking lot. In the office building design are seven floors of offices above the ground, slightly cantilevering out and varying in depth. There are infrastructural cores that allow for a floor design that can be sub-sectioned into numerous units hence allowing unlimited possibilities like personal offices and open-pan sections.
