Design Challenges
The challenge in this project was to integrate the futuristic design of the building with a sustainable approach while retaining the right touch of elegency and comfort in the design that promotes a business image and productivity.
Production Technology
The structure is conceived as a simple pillar system with a concrete core. The two-way slab (Holedeck) is a system of voided concrete slabs that can be pierced through their thickness by services and plumbing systems, drastically reducing up to 20% the height required to accommodate these building components. By reducing the necessary height of each floor, fewer materials are required to achieve the same floor area as in a typical high-rise building. The geometry of the floor provides excellent acoustic performance which absorbs a wide range of the sound spectrum.
