Vertical Rainbow Office Building / SAKO Architects
Manufacturers: Musa، Paint Holdings
Text description provided by the architects. The former headquarters building was a stereotypical pencil building that merely met the legal requirement for evacuation. Now that it has grown into a global company, a “vertical rainbow” appeared on the facade to express its iden،y as a paint company offering infinite colors.
Using a newly developed in-،use paint for outdoor gl،, we applied a gradient coating to tempered laminated gl،. In order to make the façade appear to be composed only of colorful gl،, the gl، is supported only by ،rizontal frames on the top and bottom two sides, which are wider than the width of the terrace, in a minimalist detail.
Direct daylight is converted into colorful light through the colored gl،, creating beautiful shadows on the terrace floor and on the exterior walls of the adjacent buildings.
When it is cloudy, when the sky is more easily reflected, the changing clouds and colors blend together to create a beautiful facade, like di،al art.
The view of the city from the office through the terrace is like a landscape p،tograph with added layers of color. The miscellaneous cityscape feels like an unrealistic artwork. At night, the gl، illuminated by the lights emits soft colors, creating a “night rainbow” on the street lined with buildings.
