Alaska Building

Alaska Building

KOW Architecture
Description
The design includes 30,000 m2 office spaces and 11,000 m2 underground parking. A glass volume is a logical translation of a large program within the requirements of the masterplan and historic boundaries of a relatively small plot of land. The urban planning context and the indepth plans ask for a large degree of transparency in the facades. In combination with demanding climate control requirements, the application of insulated facades is a justified choice. The fire security of this entirely glazed building has been solved in an ingenious manner, whereby sprinkler systems are not necessary. Through means of a simple form, the building is understated with sensitive detailing strength the architectural design. #Alaska #Alaska_Building #Architecture #KOW #Rijswijk #Shell
