Project Description

OYO Architects as Architects

The interpretation of the OSTA Carpets HQ consists of two readable volumes that seem to have been slid together; as a symbol for the dynamics and relationship between the carpet craft on the one hand and the administrative support on the other hand. The lowest but largest volume is the production hall, which is conceptually translated into a volume with black bardage plates. On top of the production hall, a glazed volume reveals a dynamic workspace that is tailored to the needs of the client and focuses on the new way of working to stimulate social interaction, teamwork and knowledge exchange.

The different materiality between the production hall and the offices reinforces a spatial play between the two volumes. In short, the future-oriented building and its interior radiate a strong language but is at the same time characterized by a simple and timeless outline when it comes to architecture.
