In the public competition for architectural and urban design of the new business center Miramarska-Bednjanska in Zagreb, Croatia, the proposal by 3LHD architects was awarded the first prize. From 26 competition entries, Croatian firm 3LHD was chosen by a unanimous jury decision.
This is how the architects describe their concept:
The urban matrix of the location is a collision space between two urban concepts â€“ the northern with firm blocks stopped by the railway and southern with dominating towers of public character.
The awarded project stems from forming a unified structure that will reconcile the two colliding concepts and meet the program requirements. Two interacting volumes, a tower with 20 floors and a lower building with 5 floors, unite the planned goals and achieve high quality relations with the neighboring buildings. A semi-open atrium between the two buildings connects them with the surrounding public pedestrian surfaces. The underground floors are reserved for garage spaces, ground floor for shops, bars and restaurants. There are 20000 square meters of office space, and a unique viewpoint at the top of the tower.
Simple but at the same time attractive effect of the facade design, made by pulling glass modules in and out, gives the building recognition and uniqueness.
