The European Headquarters for Calvin Klein & Tommy Hilfiger, was the start of something big – namely, a ‘campus’ development for Calvin Klein’s and Tommy Hilfiger’s parent company, PVH. With European HQ for Calvin Klein & Tommy Hilfiger as the cornerstone of the PVH Campus, two more key buildings on the waterfront completed an unusual three-in-one complex. Given their different focuses and functions, our approach stresses unity in diversity, with three overlapping water-related concepts.
A maritime setting suggests a variety of associations, so to underline the shared yet separate identity of the three buildings, we interpreted it in three different ways. The European HQ Calvin Klein & Tommy Hilfiger building, the first to be completed, has the sleek lines and shiny finishes of a sailing ship. The middle, low-rise building, the social hub of the campus, has a stratified yet flowing form inspired by a waterfall. The third, a high-rise office complex, has a graphic façade that reflects the movement of waves.
