A striking contemporary design driven by its users
The new Roche headquarters building in Lisbon, Portugal, integrates two separate divisions, Pharma and Diagnostics into one striking contemporary development.
Won through open competition, the scheme was developed through rigorous user interviews and brief writing. The new headquarters building is part of a phased masterplan – future phases include the construction of a new gymnasium, football pitch, and jogging track within newly landscaped grounds. The building organisation is simple, contemporary and extendable which may be required at a future date.
The building is divided into three zones, ‘Front of House’, the ‘Spine’ and the ‘Back of House’. The ‘Front’ contains the reception, all meeting rooms, an internet-café, restaurant and Forum with seating for 200 people.
