Goals / Concept

  • Create a high performance administrative building integrated to the urban context of UNISINOS Campus, but with strong identity and architectural quality, where spacial, environmental and technical solutions are harmonically combined.
  • Provide comfortable, efficient and stimulating workspaces.
  • Use rational and economical energetic systems.
  • Design simple volumes clearly expressing the technological nature of the building and its contemporarity.
  • Create a building that can fulfill all the requirements for obtaining the US Green Building Council LEED Gold Certificate.
  • Adoption of a linear scheme along an axis parallel to the rear limit of the site for future expansion.
  • Take advantage of small difference of level existent in site for future cafeteria.
  • Distribution of space requirements in 4 floors, emphasizing the horizontality of the building in harmony with the scale of the Campus architecture.
  • Adoption of a modular grid for the whole design, in order to establish a flexible co-ordinate system.
  • Definition of double office blocks 12m wide separated by open spaces thus promoting views as well as fruition of natural light and ventilation.
  • Use of “brise-soleils” in north and south façades for protection against excessive sunlight and heat.
  • Localization of the building 30m from rear boundary of site, along East-West axis, and North-South orientation.
  • An internal alley, organizes circulation as well as access to parking (200 cars uncovered and 100 covered), to future unloading docks services and main reception.
