Strančice Administration Building
The project is the administration building of a company that distributes and manufactures concrete mixes, and whose leadership is pushing towards on alternative technologies, energy sources and building practices. The industrial character of the land has a raw and authentic atmosphere thanks to the never-sleeping concrete mixer and the 40-metre-tall agriculture silo opposite.
The content of the building is reflected in the disorganized expression of the architectural object, which is cast entirely in-situ. The concrete form takes inspiration from diagrammatic experimentation and a close relationship with the surrounding environment, as well as responding to the movement of the sun and the motion of the cars around it.
Grown trees have been preserved and lay encircled by the structure. Concrete textures of various structures create the floor, ceilings and walls – the key components of the building itself – and the roof is cast from thermally insulating concrete. The walls are an astonishing 1-m-thick and required no further finishing or cladding.
The installation of building elements is visible, carried on the concrete structure, with the windows forming the eyes of the house. Parking is on the roof of the building alongside a photovoltaic power plant which incorporates electric car chargers.
The building hides elements that have been developed by the company itself, such as a 10-m tilt gate that serves as roofing, a brick-laying robot, railings, rails, etc.
