The Big Green Egg is synonym to the highest quality Kamado barbecues. Big Green Egg Europe imports and delivers to 42 countries in Europe. The wish of the client was to create a tailor-made office building, with a design level that should match and reflect the quality of the product. Situated in an average business park it was important that the architecture and the lighting design should feel luxurious and have an inviting atmosphere.
The outdoor character of the product, is reflected in the design of the building. The spaces are wrapped like a spiral around an inner garden. The entrance and public areas are open, transparent, and yet reflect warmth.
Inside and outside seem to merge. For example the court yard wall that continues indoors is lit continuously, as if it were in one space. When the spiral curls towards the offices the material and lighting design become more formal, the lighting is more even and has a slightly cooler color temperature.
As we were engaged in the project in an early stage, a high level of detail was been achieved throughout the project in close collaboration with the architect.
