italian firm studiodosi developed ‘the calls henge’ a proposal for the 36 calls competition
in leeds, UK.

they designed a six storey office building spanning approximately 2.260 sqm, suspended
above a 360 sqm public space, facing the river and in a former warehouse site. a circular
ring, coated with green see-through walls (ivy), hangs over the river, leaving the ground
level free for circulation, for social events

geothermal pumps and roof-top solar panels help the building to control and reduce
energy consumption, while the see-through ivy coating modulates direct sunlight
and features the entire development identity.
