As Offices (Mixed Use Building) by Xavier Abreu
2016 - 2017, Golden A' Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The general concept of the project was to design a building that is presented as the firm's signature image, with a contemporary and simple design that comes from a white prism that starts unfolding; truly representing everything that the office lives, and allowing users to enjoy its great spatiality.
Creativity
The Project consists of an office building that required 3 retail spaces for rent and an architecture workshop. The 15 x 20m land, situated in a corner, forced the design to compact the building in order to get the sufficient parking space required.
Design Challenges
One of the biggest challenges in designing this mixed-use building was to achieve harmony between two elements of different typology because of their function. The office required to reflect a strong image and character, and the retail commercial spaces, being for rent, needed a moderate investment with good looks.
Production Technology
Reinforced concrete structure, with a beam and vault ceiling.
