Operating Units

2001, Planning Permission, Documentation for Planning Permission, Detailed Design

The separate object is composed of two connected parts, the administration and the operating unit.

The administration unit is a three-story, flat roofed building without a cellar, built upon a rectangular ground plan with a parterre opened for both sheltered and outside parking places. The operating unit is a single-story hall object with a partial basement and a variable construction height level, built upon a rectangular ground plan. The flat roof of the building ends in a distinctive console which shelters a dispatch area.

The design requires that a demanding building program is placed within the limits of a relatively small construction site, to which the space dimension concept of the architectonic implementation responds by taking advantage of the building plot's mild inclination. Beside other benefits, the suggested solution also enables construction of a sufficient number of parking places.

The overlap of the dominant masses of each of the construction objects helps the complex resultant proportion blend into the character of the surrounding landscape. Among distinctive architectonic features of the final design stand the massive console sheltering a dispatch area, the application of an open parterre principle, the solid walls with irregularly positioned windows and the surface opaque glazing of the administration unit’s third floor and the operating unit’s elevated mass.
