Set in a chaotically developed industrial site, the MAPCOM building project took over an existing structure and reinterpreted it in a contemporary key. Starting from a frame, lacking in much architectural perspective, the building’s current look emerges as a benchmark for the future development of the entire complex.
The MAPCOM project integrates the existing structure with an additional partial floor that hosts a generous terrace and a vertical circulation node. The technologically advanced envelope, comprised of a curtain wall made of thermal and sound insulating glass, provides an increased level of energy efficiency, offering the end user an optimal climate. Although not very tall, the vertical circulation benefitted from special attention, the building being equipped with a panoramic elevator with self-supporting transparent closures on all four sides.
The spatial layout makes the best out of the surroundings, with the building situated in close vicinity to a leisure and sports area.
