Symbiosis Designs LTD recently won the design competition to build Techno Group Headquarters in Amman, Jordan. The building massing concept creates a negative space that would be a certain interruption to the continuous street frontal façades, hence a specific and differentiated visual field is announced where the void becomes a captive. More images and brief project description after the break.

The negative field is the primary focal point staging majestic trees. Through the building’s homogenous material expression, the steel structural skin is also a grounding continuum and an assurance of rigor, visual noise reduction and simplicity.

The austerity of the building exterior is quickly balanced by the softness of the floating and humming wooden clouds on the inside. The visitor’s path is treated as a celebratory narrative or scenographic revelation of the con- tents and values of the client. The building interior is constructed to offer pure and simple working halls that balance light and shade and drive at reducing visual noise, offering pensive spaces and very synergetic working environment.

The building concept brings all building elements into a rigorous concealed framework. Redundancies are collapsed into single expression tidy within the structural skin and floor assembly reducing unnecessary articulations. Its seamless assembly stands representative of a sophisticated design and fabrication industry, that of the client. A unique resonating form along with a captive void and prevailing balances were the sought after expression.
