|Location||Belo Horizonte, Brazil|
|Brief||ARROW was asked to design a building that would assemble all administrative employees of the municipality of Belo Horizonte into one builing, serving as an exemplar of future working environments.|
‘The name says it all; Belo Horizonte, or “the beautiful horizon”, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain landscape’
Triangle, the symbol of Belo Horizonte
We used the triangle as a symbol to represent Belo Horizonte, creating a strong, flexible and efficient administration building.
The administration building gives optimal condition for the people working in it and the public using it. As a prolongation to the building, a new large square will integrate the existing and new flows in one open public space.
Open, efficient & iconic
A continuous movement wraps through the building as large common spaces that create identity and a local gathering point for 2-5 floors of office space.
From the inside, this space gives magnificent views of the city and works as a constant reminder of the people the administration serves. From afar, they offer a deeper look inside a transparent organisation, symbolising the democratic regional government.
