Design Practice Location:
For the Swiss branch of a real-estate development company, the interior design for the new office concept was developed with the preservation of historical monuments in the mind. Elegance and generous proportions, together with a mix of unusual and high-quality materials plus accentuated lighting, distinguish the office areas and conference zones on four floors. With regard to the architectural quality of the building and the demands of the customer, a special material combination of black marble, brass, carbon and glass was chosen for the floors, walls and ceilings.
As an act of reminiscence, the classical materials are newly interpreted in their use, colourfulness and glossiness. Like a passe-partout, the resulting spatial effect frames the view and allows the low room heights of the existing building to retreat into the background. In contrast to the black space continuum are the high-gloss furniture and bright lighting channels.
