Entry Description

The headquarters are usually established in city centers or at communication junctions. Here, the goal was to design a building on a green plateau. A narrow plot cut by a stream and a view of the golf course was an inspiration to create a triangular plan. Soft, horizontal lines and natural colors have integrated it with the landscape. The design has a clear principle to locate offices along the external facade, while the relax zones around the inner courtyard which becomes a public square to integrate all employees. Each place takes full advantage of the natural surroundings and light.
