The Umicore Office Building is Curvy

The Umicore Office Building is a snaking structure sure to garner a lot of attention. Simple with a touch of the surreal, it is essentially an all-glass building with what appears to be a slinking metal material that has been sinuously incorporated into the design as an anchor for the eyes.

Since the Umicore Office Building houses a materials technology company, it takes on an industrial aesthetic while introducing an overall contemporary design. This works to re-brand the company, creating a new and more accessible identity, while also reshaping the look of the street it is located on.

Designed by Conix Architects, the Umicore Office Building is located in Hoboken, Belgium. This unrestrained design really stands out over the otherwise monotonous and bland surroundings.
