Transparency is a core value of the organization that will occupy this office, and was therefore an important starting point for the design. The all-glass facade maximizes visibility and light penetration. The facade rim sets apart from the glass at certain points and creates overhangs in places where it is required to reduce solar heat. The shape of the building follows in basis the existing building line of adjacent buildings. On the corner of the intersection and the best view the second floor cantilevers to accentuate the corner. The same floor jumps back at the entrance of the location to create a roof garden.
The electricity for the entire building is generated by solar panels. The mossedum grass roof improves infiltration of rainwater. CO2-controlled zone air handling units and presence detectors for lighting ensure that no energy is wasted. The building will have an energy label A +++ and performs 50% better in energy preservation than is required by building regulations.
