Located on a narrow site, the building requires a showroom on the lower levels, group offices, a library and a living space on the roof top. In order to refresh a family-style business into a standard corporate brand for the future the architectural design was developed together with the branding strategy of TKS group.
For us a modern tower with state-of-the-arts equipment and materials to reflect the machinery products and tools equipment that the building is showcasing. Although, space is limited we still want to emphasize on the generosity of width and height by opening up the ground floors from front to rear as well as connecting them spatially and visually, giving an ambient of fluidity and grandeur.
The façade treatment itself is designed to provide shade from the sunrise on the east as well as to provide unique illumination through the perforated aluminum screens that wrap around the building envelop. This is achieved with the use of both the horizontal slab overhang and the vertical shading panels.
