Alongside the important route from the city center of Leeuwarden, the Oostergoweg, we made a design for a multi business complex, commissioned by Adema/BBF. The buildings alongside the Oostergoweg aren’t unequivocal. Diverse functions next to each other and variable front and back facades towards the street. The proportion of the road section with high poplars, wide street and green median strip is the only part that’s right.
An autonomous and modest brick building with a strong front façade will be the best answer towards the street. The office has a surface off 3000m2. Through the main entrance at the Sixmastraat and the other offices, a connection is made with the Oostergoweg. Recognizable by the massive cantilever at the Oostergoweg and the slope roof. This ‘head’ defines its typical character. The whole building is erected with brick material. The flanking façades have windows which are subordinate, bring enough daylight, and facilitate the office function. The front façade and the entrance deviate in service of maximal view from the public spaces and meeting rooms behind these façades. The set-up of the offices is flexible; it facilitates the future growth and change of offices. The installations are designed within this concept and can be individually controlled, very sustainable.
