Appreciation towards RAU Architects for providing the following description:

RAU建筑事务所和Ex Interiors室内设计公司在Triodos银行和开发商EDGE的委托下,设计了一座完全可重建的木制“教堂”,为全球的循环和可持续发展奠定了步调。该项目作为第一个100%木制且可重建的大型办公建筑,不仅实现了最低的二氧化碳排放量,还可以被用作临时的材料仓库。

RAU Architects and Ex Interiors have been commissioned by Triodos Bank and developer EDGE to design a fully, reconstructabe, wooden “cathedral” that sets the tone in a circular and sustainable manner worldwide. The office is the first large-scale, 100% wood, reconstructible office building. This building also serves as the first temporary material bank, and the CO2 footprint is minimal.

The building has no clear front or back. The nature-friendly footpaths lead the passersby and employees to the two entrances. Once inside, the transparency of the building and the special wooden construction become clear. The fully glazed façade extends from floor to floor, allowing natural light to penetrate deep into the building. A floor-to-ceiling window can be opened for each 3.60-metre facade pattern. This makes the connection with the surrounding landscape even sharper, without it disrupting the indoor climate adjustment.

A building for nature, culture and economy – The composition and form of the five-storey building (12,994 m2) is inspired by nature, the rhythm of the landscaped rooms in the surrounding estate and the flight paths of bats. The three transparent, uniform towers run from south to north and are alternately connected on the ground, first and second floors. This physical body provides a beautiful view for all employees daily. Because of its shape, three new “landscape rooms” are created between the edge of the forest and the building and create a diversity of new landscape qualities around it.

中庭空间为不同楼层建立了视觉上的连接。旋转楼梯连接了各楼层并借助小巧的天窗照亮,以自然的方式鼓励了员工对楼梯的使用。由Ex Interiors负责完成的室内设计进一步突出了周围景观的美感。流畅的形式、精致的材料加上以庄园本身为灵感的色彩运用,共同营造出天然、静谧且与周边环境和谐相融的空间氛围。

Voids create visual connections between the different floors. The spiral staircases in the voids connect the floors and form short openings that stimulate the use of the staircase in a natural way. The interior designed by Ex Interiors further reflects the beauty of the surrounding landscape. The choice of organic forms, refined materials and sober use of colour inspired by the estate’s pallet ensure a natural stillness upon entering and reinforce the merging of the building with the environment.
