The UN agencies office building is a simple four-storey cube, whose diagonal symmetry expresses its spatial and functional characteristics and refers to the features of the immediate natural environment.
The office building is located in the centre of Sarajevo, in the Marijin Dvor area, on the banks of the river Miljacka, as one of five buildings that form a series of office buildings for diplomatic and consular missions.
The building comprises two underground levels of parking places and four floors of office space. The office floors are designed as a system of four tracts with offices located around the perimeter that runs continuously around the entire floor plan of the building.
Due to the specific programmatic requirements, the building is designed so that it can be divided into two independent units. Owing to the symmetrical positioning of vertical communications and two related technical units, the spatial organisation on each floor can vary in accordance with the specific requirements of future users.
The inner duality of the building with its spatial symmetry and continuous office spaces along the façade is expressed by means of a meandering, continuous glass strip that runs around the façade, with solid walls and parapets. The meandering glass strip reflects the former and current meandering of the river Miljacka and the parapet, formed by a three-dimensional vertical element, is an echo of Wilson Alley, where the property is located.
