The design brief asks the designer to intervene in sensitive scenic areas with a discourse that questions pre-existing concepts of work environments and elevates them to a whole new level by using the benefits of the digital age. The Faroe Islands' Netflix corporate den must transform the meaning of work for its employees by enabling new architectural identities, changing workspace attributes, a collaborative atmosphere, and offering opportunities for socio-cultural exchange.
'The Faroe frame' takes a twofold approach to be an Icon, paying homage to the Faroe region's socio-physical characteristics in every dimension conceivable, whether through the "Form that frames," the "Facade that reflects," the "Podium that connects," or the "Bridge that invites". Internally, the architecture takes inspiration from the geology of the Faroe Islands itself to create a space that flows like a continuous landscape at various levels, connected by intermittent bridges and staircases, with multi-level atriums and stepped spaces that create a sense of dynamism and community in the users.
