“Straight edge or curve? In architecture, this was often a question of mindset. Then, Deconstructivism came along and revealed, among other things, the conflict between unleashing creative design and load-bearing capacity, between curves and straight edges, between reason and emotion. Deconstructivist architects created awe-inspiring shapes by harnessing the inherent power struggle between forms and objects”.
GANG Headquarters is an exemplary project in terms of sustainability and environmental design. The elements that make up its DNA are in fact the low carbon design to achieve the energy self-sufficiency of the building.
Lighting plays a fundamental role in architecture.
The company Alucubond has selected the Gang building and tells the details in this publication dedicated to the best newly built architectural projects.
In harmony with the project carried out by SAI Schleburg Generalplanungs GmbH, Andcosta designed and realized more than 100 Luna hanging lamp in different sizes and in a special direct light version.
The fascinating noise-absorbing membrane is covered on the upper side by an ALUCOBOND® surface. The membrane of Luna, in addition to returning a particulary suggestive light helps to muffle the noise.
We chose this material for its reflectance capabilities. The ALUCOBOND® panel bounces the light without absorbing it, thus increasing the light beam.
Great attention to psychophysical well-being was the focus of the project and it perfectly integrates with the choice of Luna suspension by Andcosta.
A sophisticated luminous object in terms of technique, visual comfort and more. Luna has a very low UGR value to ensure maximum comfort to the workplace (but also at home) and is flicker free.
The membrane of Luna, in addition to returning a particularly suggestive light, helps to muffle the noise. Luna reflects a radical approach to sustainability with an intelligent design attentive to comfort and environmental impact. Luna is a luminous object with optimal energy efficiency that allows a rational and intelligent use of energy resources that’s why was choose for this project: the calculation of the consumption and the emitted light of this poetic luminous object, compared to other competitors lamps, has turned out to be the most suitable for this project!
In this project, Luna suspensions stand out through the facades that follow one another in a sinuous shape made of glass and metal.
“The new Gang building, is a neat fit and scaled to suit the size of its surroundings:
Its shape and materials make a bold statement: it is a sweeping, kidney shape with rounded corners, clad in glazed bands and ALUCOBOND® tray panels which run uninterrupted around the whole façade. The slender aluminium composite tray panels are easily formed to follow the building’s curves. The finish on ALUCOBOND®, a linear structured matt reflective aluminium, emphasises the horizontal orientation and strikes a futuristic contrast with the rendered stone buildings, the green meadows and the forests around the site”.
