The UNStudio Tower is located on the South Axis in Amsterdam, which connects Schiphol Airport to the major business areas of Amsterdam South. The Tower office typology incorporates considerations about required office layouts, and floor organizations that maximize views and access to light. Four inset voids were introduced on the façade of the building to allow for the internal clustering of offices, and to help bring daylight deeper into the floor. Each of the inset voids is characterized by a different colour, providing varying identities to individual spaces throughout the building. The horizontal stripes on the façade are made of white aluminum panels which vary in size in relation their position on the facade. A primary function of these bands is to protect the office space from direct sunlight, whilst simultaneously allowing extensive daylight penetration into the floors.
