New Air Traffic Control Center, comprising air control center with 24/7 amenities and office premises is a highly demanding and complex object due to the nature of the institution it hosts. It is designed to enable safety and high operational activity as well as consistent comfort for visitors and staff 24 hours a day all year around.
The building, located in the middle of the plot, consists of three parts: the central space; the double-height ATCC room, or the pentagon; two wings of offices on the first floor and public spaces on the ground floor.
Within, the object is organized by five levels of security zones with access control at each passage. The further one moves from the rim that holds administrative and rest areas towards the centre of the object, the greater the security level of the areas. The compact design serves to enhance the operational efficiency of the object, paths are short and manageable.
The particular geometric shape of the buildings skin, designed as parametric system becomes the main, immediately identifiable, feature of the building.
