When many people think of beautiful architecture, they often overlook office buildings. Some of the greatest examples of architecture today are office buildings built with structural beauty in mind.
A look at the huge metropolises of Chicago, New York and other cities proves this. Gorgeous soaring office buildings drape the landscape of the sky and enhance the panorama of the city.
Office building architecture is nothing new but has been modernized for the 21st century lifestyle. Architects use many different visual effects to create the overall look of the office building.
Unusual shapes and colors, as well as intricate patterns and a variety of textures are used. Stone, etched glass, mirrors, and other materials are used to create a dramatic look. The height is expertly used as a center of gravity for the viewer’s interest.
The appearance of an office building today is an integral part of public branding. Buildings should give the customer a unique statement about what the company is really about. If a company can captivate viewers with a stunning and custom office design, there is a good chance it will be rewarded with more customers.
For this reason, a lot of thought and effort goes into the external and internal design of an office building. The best office building architecture becomes a public landmark that is passed down from generation to generation.
