The object was to create a homogenous appearance, to reinforce and underline the presence of the existing cube and at the same time conserve functions like the view to the outside through the façade.

To create a dynamic interaction between different views to the outside and movements in the inside of the building we employed aluminium sheets with different perforations, that remind of a clouded sky (Perforations and light). Thoughts and functions are the substance of a resulting image - a reduced surface.


Already existing corrugated sheet metal walls were provided with an aluminium support structure and perforated sheets of aluminium.
