Ensemble of four office buildings with congres/commercial facilities and children's daycare

KCAP as Architects

The office development 'IAK' (Immeuble Administratif du Kirchberg) comprises of four buildings, occupying a prominent location in the city of Luxemburg and facing the main square of Luxemburg’s European district.

The urban integration of the ensemble and the composition of individual buildings are key elements of the design. This concept allows to maintain a human scale within the European district and makes the block a permeable interlinking element within the major pedestrian transfer routes. The introverted outdoor spaces within the block complement the structure of the surrounding public spaces. The buildings present a clear architectural language towards the main square and provide a strong volume from the street to reinforce the development’s urban appearance as requested by the masterplan by Dominique Perrault.

Each of the four buildings in individually designed, but reveals the same material expression in a variety of façade modules. The ground floor, on top of the underground parking, hosts functions such as a conference room, learning center and a restaurant to activate the public space. The upper four to five stories are composed as offices. The children’s daycare is located in a more intimate space enjoying a large private outdoor space.
