Advice House is the first completed building in the Lysholt Park, a new business-park north of Vejle, and is with its proximity to the motorway designated to act as landmark and eye-catcher for the entire development.
C. F. Møller Architects have developed two office-projects, Advice House and Lysholt Tower, for the client Lysholt Erhverv A/S. Both projects employ a simple, yet visually strong cladding with an unusual, colour-changing appearance. This week, KPMG were the first tenants to move into the new building.
The Advice House interior is 5000 sqm of open and flexible office layout, where various tenants share the same large space, which offers dramatic perspectives and angles. The building is shaped around two angled office wings, separated by an equally angled atrium, resulting in a plan resembling a hexagon with one angle pushed inwards.
The two wings connect by walkways across the atrium, and the floors’ continuous window-bands give a high degree of freedom in the space-planning. A large, north facing glazed gable gives passers-by a glimpse into the dynamic void, day or night, and the open and transparent interior is also naturally ventilated.
The building’s unusual geometry makes for a dramatic and changing appearance when driving by on the motorway, and this mutability in form and shadows is further heightened by the colouring and texturing of the facades, designed to catch the light. The cladding-strips are composed of a ‘random’ sequence of a total of 13 differently proportioned cladding panels, some of which are folded diagonally to create a triangulated pattern. The panels are mounted horizontally at staggered intervals, creating a glittering array of colours, light and shadows.
The cladding panels are made from aluminium with a special colour pigmentation that offers changing colour effects with highlights and interesting colour gradients, depending on the viewing angle and the angle of the sun. Thus, the building never appears in quite the same way, and the effect is especially striking when passing by on the motorway.
