Timec Office Building

The project foresees the creation of a new Timec office building in Tianjin (China) beside the existing block, ensuring a steep improvement of thermal performance through specific technical strategies.

The new building envelope is a composition of modular opaque and clear panels, not only reducing construction and maintenance costs but creating a colorful and dynamic facade.

Through the formal reinterpretation of the existing building, the new facade respects the original layout prescriptions, achieving a harmonious integration in the context.

In the entrance, the creation of an external barycentric reception that serves both buildings optimizes the office’s workspace, and the creation of a covered footbridge guarantees the connection between the office blocks.

The central patio is covered by a transparent dynamic roof permitting passive ventilation to take place and daylight to naturally illuminate the workspaces, the open staircase offers an optimal visual and physical connection between the different levels.
