Electronica offices

About the project

Location: Sofia, Bulgaria

Building Type: Offices and commercial area

Surface: 8500 m²

Project: 2008

The Electronica Office Building is situated in the Slatina region in Sofia, facing the Sky City Mall. Its atrium construction provides for light, space and unique working environment featuring a panoramic view and perception of an open area. The individual working places arranged along the building’s facade and towards the atrium are lighted from both sides, and the intermediate areas can be used for team work and meetings.

The building’s facade and proportions are built on the contrasting principle, as the static and heavy atrium construction is counterpointed by light and dynamic plastics. The northern facade is a suspended, entirely glazed, typical entrance facade of an office building, with an elevated passage area in front of it, and a console visor emphasising the main entrance and the shop entrances

The southern and eastern facades are entirely glazed. A specific metal net is constructed in front of these facades, with openings protecting from harsh sunlight and ensuring improved energy efficiency. The atrium roof is glazed with the ‘spider’ glazing system, and the denser parts of the facade will be metal bond-panelled. The offices on the first level are organised after the ‘open space’ principle, with an utmost flexibility for formation of smaller or bigger offices, and separate sections within these offices.

The office building will also have four offices on the current floor, shops and cafeteria on the ground level, and a conference room and cafeteria on the top floor. The sixth and the seventh floor are to be used by the investor, and are separately connected through an internal staircase.
