This office building distincts from its surroundings because of its detailing and the skin in glazed sandcoloured plates and bricks strips that run from the façades onto the roof. The cladding of the archetypal form encloses the body fully and consistently. The architect chose a clotted glaze with a lively random pattern with the aim of making it not immediately recognisable. The result is that from various angles and depending on one’s distance from the building it changes its appearance.
