Camenzind Evolution was designed of Cocoon Exclusive Office Headquarter
Located in Zürich – Switzerland, Camenzind Evolution was designed of Cocoon Exclusive Office . The Cocoon building is located in the Seefeld Quarter, lying on a superb hillside with optimal sunshine and views overlooking Zurich Lake and the mountains on the horizon. The unique quality of the site exists due to its extraordinary and park-like landscape surroundings.
The bold stand-alone building embodies an innovative conception of interior spatial organization and interaction with the surrounding environment. In doing so, it caters for a wide variety of workplace and occupancy concepts. With its spiral massing, Cocoon may be conceived as aof “communication landscape” that creates a unique spatial configuration and working environment in a matchless setting. The stepped, upward-winding sequence of segments also shapes the character of the building interior. All spaces are arranged along a gently rising ramp, which wraps around a , light-flooded atrium. The concept dispenses with the traditional into horizontal storeys in favour of a seemingly endless sequence of elliptical floor segments. By eliminating the usual barriers to communication, this generates a unique spatial experience and working environment that unlocks a host of intriguing possibilities for interaction and co-operation. The floorspace design is occupancy-neutral and provides for fully flexible partitioning together with the adaptability necessary to meet the shifting needs of future users. Together, the various elements – lift, spiral ramp, segments and stairwell – constitute a clearly structured, versatile circulation system that provides for both the desired interaction and the necessary flexibility to alternative uses.
