Randić & Turato shared their competition entry for the new Adris Group headquarters in Zagreb. The architects investigated corporate office typology and its ability to generate public space when designing the proposal. ”Instead of building a structure on the perimeter of the block, that creates a characteristic configuration with public street on the outside and enclosed private court on the inside, the concept raises the program in a structure that hovers over the existing block,” explained the architects. In this way, the ground floor is completely accessible to the public creating a covered square below the new office building. The structure is supported by our sets of large steel columns that hold the building’s independent geometries. Each of these “legs” are programmed with ground level activities while the offices are organized within a horizontal framing structure.
More about the design after the break.
