SOZAWE (welfare department and work agency) by NL architects is located in the city of groningen; consisting of office spaces, a large interior public space and 215 parking spaces. in their design NL aimed to construct a building which was open, inviting and sustainable. a crucial part of the program was the ‘marketplace’ or ‘square’ to allow interaction between the department and its customers.

the stepped volume typology for the office building creates numerous cross relations between floors. in total there are 9 office floors. each floor has access to an outdoor space that will feature trees and a view over the city.
