Rhizom is not an office building, but a network building

Our physical and technological reality is a reality of nodes, connections, networks and systems that allow for new ways of human interaction. 

The strength of Rhizom is the network, facilitating opportunities for the modern organization to gather forces and ideas within a controlled, yet self-developing chaos.

An idea built around a progressive vision of interaction, co-working, extended office facilities and varied spaces for work.

Rhizom has a calm and rhythmic exterior expression - but houses an interior world of organized chaos.

The proposal reflects the provident organization’s need for flexibility, identity, activity and spaces for serendipity. 

Distributed in clusters throughout the 26 floors is a varied program of public functions, complementing the over 1000 working spaces.

Spaces for serendipity - the rooftop bar

Whilst hosting a complex interior world of activity, motion and coincidence, the building’s exterior expression is calm and rhythmic – in a cityscape already victim of visual turmoil.

Site Plan

The wooden pillars in the façade are load-bearing, and makes for a combination of rigid core-slab constructions, and local materials and knowledge.

A typical office floor, consisting of different office constellations and shared/public functions.

Rhizom is a building made for global ideas, yet with a strong local anchoring.
