The G-Star RAW HQ consolidates G-Star RAW’s formerly disparate facilities into a single building that aims to stimulate interaction between various departments.

“Inside the creative core of the building, staggered floor plates and double-height spaces promote a dynamic exchange between the different creative departments allowing for cross-communication.” says OMA.

“The RAW-space, a flexible multi-use zone, either open to the outside or concealed behind sliding hangar-type doors, provides a space for work and production, parties, and fashion shows.”
