ASAN 2.0

SHAKI

 

AN ENERGY-CONSCIOUS COMMUNITY PAVILION IN AZERBAIJAN

ASAN service centres is a state agency established in 2012 in Azerbaijan. The ASAN service centres offer daily desk services like notary, passport, driving licence, commercial registration, banking, insurance, etc. Highly computerised systems save time and money for both community and citizens. The ASAN centres also aim for social innovations by being the heart of the local community and providing communal and educational events. ASAN 2.0 has two new concepts:

1. INDOOR PUBLIC SPACE
?Transparency of the organisation? is one of the mottos of ASAN and this gave us the idea to blur the spatial boundary between the private and the public territory of the facility. Maxwan has designed this facility as a ?public living room? for citizens. The closed boxes (private territories) are spread into a big transparent box (public territory). Traditional wood craftsmanship is employed for the façade of the closed boxes.

2. RENEWABLE ENERGY
ASAN 2.0 is a showcase of renewable energy. Solar tubes, photovoltaic (PV) panels, wind turbines, biomass installations, rainwater collectors are integrated into the design for the centres and are highly visible for the citizens to raise their awareness.
