Award „best. architects 11“; „Award 2010 for Marketing + Architecture“: The building is primarily used to present the company’s current products to visitors in a form that not only shows off their appearance but also demonstrates their use. At the same time, the premises are a suitable venue for public events, product presentations and informal gatherings. The two-storey building is designed as a shell, with the central core providing space for storage, the lift and side rooms. Two open, opposed and curved staircases link the ground floor to a gallery with exhibition bays and demonstration bathroom layouts on the upper floor. The atrium at the centre of the building is filled with natural light from small round skylights in the ceiling.

This historically significant 4-story building, constructed of masonry bearing walls and heavy timber, occupies a rectangular 1.5 acre site at 1614 Campbell Street in Oakland, CA. Originally used as an incandescent light factory by General Electric (GE) and designed by the Austin Company, the building construction was completed between 1912 and 1917. The site continued under GE ownership in 1962 when the division closed. The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake resulted in the destruction of a north bay of the west wing, not to be rebuilt in the rehabilitation project. The structure is noted for being the first industrial building on the West Coast to employ women.

The building accommodates the central Public Safety services for a one million people urban area.
The ground on which the building sits was unstable. It was uncertain. It is the result of having quickly filled an open mine, with pits up to 50 m deep, which formed a cavernous place in its physical reality and its memory.

The IT firm CAB Holland required a building that would clearly reflect the company’s technical nature.
van Es architecten developed a modern design characterised by clear lines, an abundance of metal and glass and an orange-yellow overhang that clearly marks the elevated office section. The building’s design incorporates various sustainable and comfortable air conditioning solutions that make use of heat recovery, adiabatic cooling and the recycling of the residual heat generated by the server room located in the complex.
