The project is essentially a demonstration of a future vision: a future workspace for the transient.
At urban scale level, while the prominent location put forth the experience of arriving the airport both from air and road; the proximity with the airport calls for the integration of the two, one flooded with public traffic and the other demanded exclusiveness. At architectural level, the project questions the nature of workspace in the future in terms of modularity in organization, flexibility in operation and spatial quality in friendly workspace, as well as other technical considerations, in particular the noise from airport.
Fundamentally, the project questions the future of workspace both for the local and transient. Yet, a closer investigation reveals a much deeper ideology to be manifested by project. The project poses more challenges than a design of business parks in traditional sense. With over 30,000 sq.m of floor area and 4,000 parking spaces, Skypark Business Centre will be one of the largest office complexes in Luxembourg, a world unique financial centre and the first building complex perceived upon first landing in Luxembourg. As in any other financial centres in the world, the aspiration and confidence is manifested through certain landmarks. Essentially, the project will represented the Luxembourg Airport and Luxembourg at a greater extent.
Every challenge comes with opportunities. In response to these, the design aims to maximize the potential of the site and the contests programme, in particular the proximity of the airport and Luxembourg as a world unique financial centre, by identifying the constraints and challenges of current urban and environmental contexts and exploring the opportunities of the future development. The aims to devise an unique design, in terms of urban and architectural quality, that coalesce every constraint and challenge into an architectural proposal that will capture the potential and opportunities the future development will bring to both the project and, with a greater vision in mind, Luxembourg as a whole.
