A photo shoot of the Marshal Office of the Wielkopolska Region in Poznan for the architectural office Warsztat Architektury Pracownia Architektoniczna.
The building consists of both the office building itself and the semi-public space around. Due to the location of the site and complexity of the building, the semi-public, space was located underneath the building, thus making the whole structure optically lighter. The exterior part outlines the cavity around the whole building, which makes it float above the heavy base and provides an outdoor terrace underneath the upper floors. The interior part is meant to be an extension of the open space around the core of the building and was designed as a transparent, multifunctional and flexible space for various purposes. To increase the sense of accessibility and the impression of consistency between the two zones, the external green spaces correspond with the internal winter garden. The only solid element of the floor are the communication cores.The base for the whole structure is a heavy, stone monolith, which comprises main functions of the public administration authority.
