Excerpt: Campus Infobip is an institutional design designed by 3LHD that incorporates offices in combination with the employees’ residences. The company chose a location on the southern edge of Zagreb that, though not prestigious, is well connected in terms of infrastructure.
(“Text as submitted by the Architects”)
Due to its rapid growth, the unicorn IT company Infobip commissioned a new hybrid building in Zagreb. The company chose a location on the southern edge of Zagreb that, though not prestigious, is well connected in terms of infrastructure. The plot is located in an entropic and poorly regulated area with low-rise, medium-density multi-dwelling buildings lacking both articulated public space and natural surroundings.
This prestigious investor’s campus with highly qualified employees had to compensate for these shortcomings, so the building is designed as a self-sufficient organism that provides its employees with everything they need during the work day and beyond. The investor requested that there be a residential section for employees and guests in addition to offices. The building also includes a restaurant, a recreation area, and a conference hall. This hybrid nature of the project has led to the idea of stacking the spatial and program elements on top of each other.
The base of the building contains offices gathered around a central atrium, and the slender vertical block on top of it houses the residential units. Transitional floors play a crucial role in the building’s spatial organization. The ground floor, with an open garage and entrance, is based on the idea of a “drive-in” office, necessitated by the suburban context. The public space on the 4th floor, featuring a restaurant, conference hall and a large terrace park, connects the base and the vertical block.
It is a place of rest and informal gatherings and a link between the permanent and temporary users of the building. This systematically reflects the scenario of the transition between the different urban, programmatic and social landscapes in the cross-section of the building.
All of the constructive elements are carefully coordinated, while the structure and infrastructure of the building are explicitly laid bare as part of the building’s interior and exterior design. The building functions as a spatial and technological organism that is complete unto itself, demonstrating a “functional and conceptual transparency”.
The Infobip building offers a stimulating work environment and introduces into the suburban entropic landscape a cultivated architectural complex that reflects the company’s high ambitions that it accommodates. The project demonstrates that the peri-urban areas on the edge of the city, unencumbered by identity issues, historical heritage, and other parameters, will be best suited as a proving ground for architectural exploration and the testing of typologies that are self-sufficient but not autistic.
An exciting feature of this project is the pioneering application of the VOLUM3 platform for the cooperation of all participants in the design, construction and site supervision phases.
The Infobip campus is one of the first projects in which the VOLUM3 platform was used for communication and project management from the development phase to construction. The building was built by 35 companies and communicated through the medium: 139 users used the software every day. They generated (and solved) more than 1700 individual tasks and more than 200 meeting minutes. More than 1,200 drafts were made without revisions, and there were more than 190 of these revisions and changes. All drafts and the complete workshop documentation were submitted through VOLUM3.
