NRGi's new corporate headquarters is situated in an area marked by a number of freestanding buildings. NRGi stands out from its neighbours in the surrounding area in virtue of its visually light, metallically gleaming built volume. Distinguished by an angular and distinctive fašade, the building forms a crisp contrast to the mellow, scenic context. Moreover, the building is situated and oriented so as to accommodate the path of the sun, and set at an angle so that it provides sun shading. Hence, energy efficiency is built into the structure's design. The interior echoes the dynamic tone of the fašade. Three open horizontal plates are mutually displaced diagonally. With long lines of sight across the building and vertically up through the floors, the architecture creates visual transparency and facilitates contact between employees. Small meeting pods and coffee points act as breakout areas and as spaces for informal exchanges.
