CITY CROWNS l CONES
Design number two follows the same topological principle: a movement between circle and square/ cube. We tried to meet however to the clientâ€™s wish to divide the total office space into three smaller lots and allow in this way the construction to be built in phases.
We came up with three city crowns/ cones that sit on a slope. Underneath the slope a collective parking zone is located; good for 170 cars.
Entrance hall, meeting rooms, directorâ€™s office, sanitary facilities, buffet are concentrated in a central nave on top of the underground street that runs between [...]the parking lots. In this central nave the (main) floor height switches from four meters for three office levels each, to four levels of three meter high each. Thus a tolerance is granted in which a six meterâ€™s high entrance hall can be fit in, stairs can be split up.
