The central building of DNB’s new bank headquarter cluster developed by Oslo S Utvikling (OSU) is completed. The MVRDV designed main building has 17 unique floors and a surface of 36,500m2. The pixelated volume based on small-scale working units adapts to the various influences of the urban context, combining an efficient and flexible internal organisation with a variety of specific communal spaces such as the main entrance lobby, a transparent trading floor, a sheltered public passage, respect for urban view lines and collective terraces overlooking the fjord to the south. The glass and brick exterior expresses both the transparency and stability of DNB as a modern financial institution.

This re-imagining of an Ulrich Franzen masterpiece, delicately updates materials, and reconfigures its use adapting it for a corporate headquarters of a shipping company. The division of the individual spaces generates the creation of volumes stand distant enough to structure so that its original features are still primary to the whole.

The space needed to serve as a showroom and collaborative center for the company’s east coast clients and partners, so it was crucial that it express the company’s unique and innovative culture.

The headquarter of the International SETEC, located in Vitrolles in the south of France, formerly EPAREB (Etablissement Public d’Aménagement des Rives de l’Etang de Berre) was built in several phases. Firstly, in the 70s, Jean Prouvé implemented “Petroff system” developing a three-dimensional structural steel sheet and plexiglass panels on the front. This device would allow to cover a large area without increasing the bearing points, which in turn was covered by aluminium stiffeners attached to the work front.

The promoter stated it clearly: “I want a singular and bioclimatic building”
And to him, at the beginning, that meant a building with a relatively conventional appearance which would incorporate bioclimatic systems such as solar panels.

The whole area of the Beton- Stahl- und Aspaltringes St.Veit an der Glan covers a large part of the industrial park St. Veit without being visible to outsiders. The aim of the design was, to develop a new headquarter from which the activities of all three departments can be controlled. In the area of the access road to the business premises a new arrival situation should be generated; a main building for the whole area, easy visible and accessible for arrivals.
