Text by Valerio Olgiati. The house-shaped columns carry horizontal slabs and form an earthy stone, concrete shelf. The center of the building is lit by an atrium. Four massive pillars form the foundation of the building in it. All parts of the building form an indivisible structure.
On the ground floor, there is a fireplace surrounded by walls. It is not visible from the outside. Here you enter the building from the street, the light comes from above and the atmosphere is calm.
Above the foyer, as opposed to this, are extroverted open office spaces with horizontal references to other floors and the surrounding area.
Here everything can be experienced in its entirety and one works together on open and bright balconies at street level.
