After many success OPENBOX design interventions for large scale projects, B. Grimm Power send us a brief to help creating an awareness of the important of sustainable energy to public. The brief was to create an iconic piece of landmark at their Headquarters Office, that can send a strong message.

OPENBOX design team studied the headquarters layout and proposed to create two multi-function objects at the office parking areas, at the most visible location from the main road. We will create a parking roof, completed with solar panels in a form of a stunning sculpture.

B.Grimm Power is the leading professional firm in solar energy, the company’s headquarters emphasis is using the solar panel and solar farm. The design is integration between architecture and nature. In order to create a more dynamic form, each solar panel was arranged in various angles according to energy waves to be “The Power wing”. Also, it’s inspired from B.Grimm corporate’s value, the solar panel demonstrates the unity of people in their corporation.

The piece of art itself will express engineering aesthetics by revealing a steel skeleton of a 50 meters piece of art with only 2 columns, and grand cantilever, combined with solar panels installations. This symbolised mankind’s achievements in structural and energy engineering.  Under the surface of the structure, are dashes of terracotta orange that stand for B.Grimm Power color identity.

From the main street passing the front of the headquarters office and through the entrance road, the sculptures create a strong presence with the awareness as intended. More than just a visual landmark , the sculptures symbolised a connection between engineering and art, that should be perceived as ONE.
