Architecture — Roshen Headquarters in Kiev

We proposed a new headquarters for Roshen Chocolate, Ukraine's largest confectionery manufacturer. Conceptually, a large hall that echoes with the existing industrial structures will function as the complex's missing piece in their Kiev's campus. This large hall needed to provide for two differentiated administration programs. Our proposal maintains the separation of the different elements, but at the same time keeps a visual relationship between the parts. Conceptually, we present the project as an industrial hall with an in-between floating shape. From below, this suspended floor acts as a unique ceiling topography. From above, we cut the floor with a set of closed arcs that organize the office floorplan. Circular closed offices are disposed related to this shape for the more intimate reunion space. The form of the slab, together with the circular helps to facilitate the clustering of the different office departments without the need of partition walls. With this scheme, a fluid open office plan is proposed without losing the relationship to the small and intimate scale. By repeating exclusively three column shapes, we achieve spatial complexity and depth with few elements.

 The Roshen Chocolate Headquarters was designed while I was at EM2N Architekten in collaboration with Fabian Hörmann, Isabel Gomes, Florian Kaiser, Roger Kung, Mathias Müller, Daniel Niggli and Fabien Oulevay.
