Officebuilding in the new heart of Amsterdam

Mahler4 is a project for a residential tower and six office buildings in the Zuidas district. Each office building is being designed by a different architect. In order to enhance the area’s metropolitan character, there are to be shops, bars and restaurants in the plinth of the buildings.

UN Studio has designed one of Mahler4’s six office towers. The building, on a footprint measuring 40 by 40 metres, will be 23 storeys high. Inside, there are to be diagonal open spaces in various forms, which are designed to provide optimal daylighting in the offices. On the outside, the locations of the open spaces inside the building are marked by protrusions and indentations in the façade. Vertical strips on the façade enhance the tower’s height effect. (ARCAM)
