Moving the HQ for a corporation to an outlying district is a very bold move, even if the mentioned enterprise is in agriculture service. So the biggest challenge was to create a certain environment that would invite and attract customers, guests, and employees to the building even in the middle of the countryside. By analyzing the typology of agricultural buildings it becomes clear that these buildings have very distinct features, which are being formed by required function and programme. The main traits that stand out the most is a clear distinguishment between the front entrance and a „farmyard“. With this factor in mind, the idea of winter garden was developed in such a way, that it became a main element of the building, around which the whole life of its residents started to revolve.
