FOREST office campus

Aerial shot of Forest office campus in Warsaw, Poland.
Building is supposed to meet high ‘green’ standards and will have many environment-friendly facilities within its premises. Those include a roof urban farm, outdoor fitness, leisure deck and others. Additionally it will be surrounded by a nice park – so the name “Forest” came up naturally.

The project had many versions since we first started working with HRA on it in 2015 and I hope I’ll have a chance (and client’s permission) to share them with you at some point.

Aerial photography was done in coop with Przemyslaw Pawinski from Geopoint

Russian Residential Competition

UP Architects developed a concept from the detailed competition brief for an organisational system for the residential units that worked well within the brief constraints. Hessian Design joined the team to provide a material and facade expression for this system. The idea is that within the organisation structure there are many different possibilities for facade expression using a pop-out module or set back balcony as the pieces to compose an elevation. Three different building typologies were identified in the brief and the images represent 2 of them with different material and organisational expressions.
