The access is created by means of a ramp that rises over water.
Each box is independent from each other.
Words from the architect
The clients are a law firm, a marketing office and an architecture studio. They asked for an office building that provides independence for the three different offices and at the same time gives a different image to each one.
Three boxes one of glass, one of wood and one of steel.
The idea was to represent a concrete snake that travels around the three buildings; unifying them. Each building had to be different, representing the activity that it houses.
The boxes develop the program in a lineal direction.
The Office Building is composed by three cubes. The first cube is the Architecture Studio. The whole cube is made of aluminum sheets and crystal. The central cube is the law firm. It's made of wood and crystal. The third cube is the marketing office and it's made of concrete and crystal. The three cubes have different materials so they each have an individual image.

The main pedestrian access to the building is by a long ramp that introduces the user in a route surrounded by water and landscape. The ramp ends at the first platform where the lawyers firm is. On each side you can see the two different ramps: the one for the architecture studio and the other for the marketing office. The central cube has small offices at the first floor level and the partners offices at second floor.
Three boxes float over the hill reaching out into the nature-reserve landscape beyond.
