Croatian architecture firm 3LHD has won the competition for this business center in Zagreb.
The competition program is placed on a crossing of two streets, Miramarska and Bednjanska. It is a point of colliding two urban city concepts: north part with classical city blocks of the Zagreb’s lower city enclosed by the railway and the south part primarily along the Vukovarska Street, outlined with modernistic dominant character of mostly public and social buildings.
Concept of awarded project stems from forming a unified structure that will reconcile the surrounding urban matrix and meet the program requirements. Two interacting volumes, a tower with 20 floors and a lower building with 5 floors, unite the planned goals and achieve high quality relations with the neighbouring buildings.
A semi-open atrium between the two buildings connects them with the surrounding public pedestrian surfaces. The underground floors are reserved for garage spaces, ground floor for shops, bars and restaurants. There are 20000 square meters of office space, and a unique viewpoint at the top of the tower. Simple but at the same time attractive effect of the facade design, made by pulling glass modules in and out, gives the building recognition and uniqueness.
