ONB designed new functionalities and space features to implement the activity-related workspace concept at the headquarters of the SNS Reaal Group. In order to connect the new interior spaces ONB created a pavilion between the two existing buildings. The "footprint" of the pavilion is big enough for a central bar, and we hung two bridges with a staircase in between on the second and third floor. The 'greenhouse'-like volume follows in section the size of those functions: starts narrow at the top and gets wider along the stairs to the ground floor. The facade has been realized trough parametric design. The prefabricated triangular frames are self-supporting and just assembled on site. The whole pavilion is hung trough storey high steel frames running along the upper bridge to the existing buildings and can be disassembled and fully recycled. Kiwi plants grow on a stainless steel net for shading on the south.
