The Pergamin Office complex, the landmark of the Green City eco-district, is the brainchild of the collaborative work of several architects in creating a new, connected and dynamic cityscape, naturally integrated within the Zurich valley scenery.

The figurehead of a new, redesigned eco-neighborhood, the building complex integrates into the natural environment of the valley and opens up to the city, offering versatile ground floors, suitable for multiple uses. The block’s main building is carved out by two vertical rifts, creating panoramic terraces that overlook the valley and the city center of Zurich. The office floors are conceived for maximum flexibility and layout freedom of the workspaces. The group of architects have agreed on the general look the structures and have developed a common charter for the facade design. The northern building, at the entrance to Green City, has a sleek and transparent double facade, standing as a monolithic structure that reflects the monumental road infrastructure it overlooks. The adjoining building absorbs the slightest vibrations of its western neighbor. The facade grille is made of anodized aluminum and integrates bronze-colored elements, creating an effect of interweaving light. The joinery consists of full-height glass frames, lifting the silhouette of the buildings skyward, within a robust and rigorous structure. The project is a contemporary example of a business center integrated into the natural environment, and displaying a simple and coherent architectural identity.
