European Commission, Luxembourg

European Commission, Luxembourg

The design features two buildings: a 90-meter-high office high-rise and a six-story-high annex with two penthouse stories. The ensemble comprising a tower and a perimeter block development makes an inviting gesture and is intended to embody the principle of openness the European Commission as a confederation pursues. The hall, which as the main form of access and a communication channel extends across the depth of the entire building, is reached from the forecourt. Multi-story façade elements emphasize the horizontal thrust of the overall volume because in each they case embrace two stories to form a single visual unit.
