Czech Forestry Commission Campus
The concept is based on incorporating the forest landscape into a five-finger building to create new relations between the inside office and the outside forest landscape. A nature trail surrounding the building allows exploring the different forest ecotypes.
The Sensitive way of incorporating the building in the natural surroundings, its open fronts and the modularity of the construction, which enables a variability of the interior layout. While inspecting the premises we also took a walk into the wooded areas, asking ourselves what it was that made us work in hot indoor offices when the best thing to do seemed to be to take a laptop to the woods and enjoy the tranquillity and airiness of the place while working.
In fact, this idea was the driving force behind our proposal – what we sought to do was create a transparent, yet intimate and highly presentable working space. Having this concept in mind, we opted for a radial office layout relying on a central courtyard from which the building penetrates the wooded areas and the wooded areas penetrate the building.
