Project year: 2009
Address: North Point, Cra. 7 #156-80, BOGOTÁ, Colombia

The Project, located in North Point Business Complex in Bogota, is the entrance hall for the new Tower (No. 3), the parking building and the future Tower (No. 4).

Preceded by a row of trees it opens to a passage in front of a bridge over a water pond, which emphasizes the entrance to the hall.

The space in between the buildings has the ideal dimensions for the introduction of a cubic element 18 meters in height, consisting of a metal structure covered by two types of skin:

The first, a metallic tissue-like envelope surrounding all sides of the cube, especially designed to give a pleasant and welcoming impression inside and outside the site. This is achieved by playing with natural light during the day and creating a different effect with artificial light at night.

The second is a transparent glass skin, which gives rigidity to the cubic element, adding outside reflection effects and interior transparency.

Furthermore, in relation to the Hall´s conceptual approach, the building represents a sun-blinded cube suspended over a transparent one, where both components compose a single and attractive element, serving as a prelude to the North Point Business Complex.
