Text description provided by the architects. Create a high performance administrative building integrated to the urban context of UNISINOS Campus, but with strong identity and architectural quality, where spacial, environmental and technical solutions are harmonically combined. Provide comfortable, efficient and stimulating workspaces. Use rational and economical energetic systems. Design simple volumes clearly expressing the technological nature of the building and its contemporarity.

Create a building that can fulfill all the requirements for obtaining the US Green Building Council LEED Gold Certificate. Adoption of a linear scheme along an axis parallel to the rear limit of the site for future expansion. Take advantage of small difference of level existent in site for future cafeteria. Distribution of space requirements in 4 floors, emphasizing the horizontality of the building in harmony with the scale of the Campus architecture. Adoption of a modular grid for the whole design, in order to establish a flexible co-ordinate system.

Definition of double office blocks 12m wide separated by open spaces thus promoting views as well as fruition of natural light and ventilation. Use of “brise-soleils” in north and south façades for protection against excessive sunlight and heat. Localization of the building 30m from rear boundary of site, along East-West axis, and North-South orientation. An internal alley, organizes circulation as well as access to parking (200 cars uncovered and 100 covered), to future unloading docks services and main reception.
