Development of a spiral-shaped office building
Cocoon Development, Zurich
Cocoon is the result of a novel concept of interior spatial connections and interrelationship with the surroundings, thus enabling diverse workplace and utilisation concepts. Cocoon is, in a manner of speaking, a spiral-shaped communication landscape that offers a unique spatial and working environment.
This project was put up for discussion in the network series “wieweiterarbeiten – Workspaces of the Future”.
