Facts

  • Located on the city's waterfront, where a regeneration program has been going on for some years.
  • Die optisch spektakuläre Fassade wurde mit Siebbedruckungen in 30 verschiedenen geometrischen Motiven mit jeweils ca. 3 verschiedenen Farbkombinationen als Aluminium-Band-Fassade ausgeführt.
  • Zur natürlichen Be- und Entlüftung wurden Senk-Klapp-Flügel eingebaut. Die Fassade wurde ohne Gerüststellung montiert.
  • Earlier versions of the scheme mixed conventional office space with flexible live/work "office lofts" and included a restaurant and spectacular penthouse.
  • Using advanced glass technology (and 17 distinct types of glass), Alsop & Störmer has given the building an elusive and highly pictorial presence in the city.
  • The plant installation at roof level is transformed by lighting into a "light box".
  • As built, the scheme is more conventional, with 400 m² of offices per floor and the "diving board" restaurant, projecting over the water, deleted from the plans.
  • The site is on a peninsula in the harbor and is extremely constricted. For this reason the building takes the form of a dramatic tower, though its height was reduced to 62m as a result of planning restrictions.
