Outstanding architecture

AN ARCHITECTURAL MASTERPIECE

One on One is characterised by bold architecture featuring glass and metal. It’s highly appealing construction, composed of superimposed staggered volumes, gives it exceptional visibility while providing functional offices, with a high flexibility for tenant fit-out works.

One on One has been nominated for the very prestigious European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award 2017 and was awarded the Bauhärepräis 2016 in the “Administrative and office buildings” category.

A VISIONARY ARCHITECT

 

« The challenge was to create the maximum amount of office space while ensuring maximum flexibility despite this being a complex urban corner site.

We used all our tricks and knowledge to transform constraints into strengths and strong architectural elements. This resulted in us designing a building where glass cubes stack and shift, creating private terraces along the building’s inward-facing edges.

The clever positioning of the central traffic core frees up generous peripheral areas that are the perfect size and shape for flexible office layouts.

Finally, this building is seemingly created from the simple idea of stacking office cubes but, in fact, it is the product of a multitude of constraints and the combination of vital elements. The spectacular restructuring of this corner site’s volumes has resulted in the creation of a premium address on Route d’Esch which offers its users impressive, easily arranged office spaces.  »
