Roots Steel International Headquarters

This project represented a challenge. Converting a residential old villa into an office building keeping the main structure intact. In fact the dead load was decreased by replacing heavy hollow block partitions with light partitions. Additional facade elements were integrated by providing independent foundations, columns and slabs.

Curtain wall glass replaced the existing windows and parapets followed facades outlines, no more roof tiles. Roots HO  became part of the surrounding by bringing fence down and the building forward.
