The new headquarters for Austria’s oldest transport and logistics firm is based on the idea of a continuous car park. The new structure has been located along the site boundary slightly away from the road, thereby embedding the new building within the activity of the distribution centre while distinguishing it from the neighbouring residential area. In response to this heterogeneous urban context, Cukrowicz Nachbaur developed a precise, planar two-storey office building arranged around inner courtyards which harmonises with its setting in style and scale. The company’s values and global stature are also manifested in the new architecture. By raising the headquarters off the ground, the offices are afforded unobstructed views over Gebrüder Weiss’s characteristic orange fleet. This sense of elevation expresses the importance of the building itself as the organisation’s headquarters. A grand two-part ramp leads from the entrance to the main floors. Within the two upper office levels, mezzanines and transparency are used to emphasise the non-hierarchical corporate structure, promote internal communication and encourage spontaneous exchanges among staff. This generous interior atmosphere represents a spatial experience for all its users and the architectural embodiment of the aspirations of Gebrüder Weiss. The building’s point-based wayfinding system is a metaphor for goods in transit and GW’s worldwide network. Its design scheme conveys a sense of self-assured internationality.

The Omicron Company, a world leader in the electric energy sector, wanted to enlarge its headquarters in Klaus in Vorarlberg. The ambition was to implement an innovative workplace design. The structural engineering of the new building was designed with 200 workstations, set along the existing building frame.
The framework was made with reinforced concrete and the facade composed of prefabricated wooden modules. Six internal courts, opening onto a central passage on either side, bring transparency and natural light into the centre of the building. The offices all give onto a corridor or a terrace.Sculpture spaces punctuate the circulation, offering several meeting or relaxation spots.

Hai d3 is a mixed-use community that serves as headquarters to the Dubai Design District, the hub for emerging local creative talent in the UAE.
With the need for a temporary facility to host community projects and events, it was crucial for the Hai d3 development to be flexible and able to accommodate quick assembly and disassembly in a sustainable manner. Integrating traditional Arabic neighbourhood planning into the design, the architecture was composed as a modular system, using 40-foot shopping containers in a stacking and layout arrangement.
The re-purposed shipping containers are also used as passive cooling “wind towers”, catching draft winds and directing them to ground level, Image Courtesy © Sadao Hotta

As one of the world leaders in financial and business services, Deloitte is also a trailblazer when it comes to innovative, contemporary working culture. It’s no wonder, then, that their new building at the Brussels Airport site in Zaventem would become a reflection of what the company stands for. It’s an international melting pot, where work and leisure go hand in hand and where flexibility, communication and versatility are key words.
Jaspers-Eyers Architects, which has extensive experience in designing contemporary work environments, took up the challenge for developers Codic and Immobel. The challenge was to transform abstract concepts into tangible architecture that is firmly grounded in the present and future. Architecture with respect for the existing complex, which is partially renovated. The result is both sober and imposing, a modern giant with one eye on the landing strip and the other on Zaventem.
