Bogle Architects have recently started the construction of Staromestska office development in Bratislava, Slovakia

The project was won by the firm through an invited competition in 2012 and incorporates a 10,200 sq-m commercial office scheme with views out over the historic town centre. The bold addition to the urban centre considers the heritage sites of the surrounding area in its design while also reflecting the city’s move into the future.

The facade of the building is set back at ground level to enhance the public realm which creates a partially sheltered pedestrian route and a striking social interface. The main entrance is located at the most prominent corner point of the building with the facade using a panellised system to correspond with internal office planning grid. Vertical fins on the exterior act as shading elements and also reflect the solid articulation of the adjacent Supreme Court building.

A simple building form creates a distinctive character, with the “bull nose” rounded corners allowing for exceptional views from all levels whilst minimising the loss of natural daylight created by surrounding buildings. The project is one of several by Bogle Architects in the city that have also included a school and residential apartments.
