About the project:

The existing typology of the IC building was maintained in order to meet listed building requirements, thereby preserving the silhouette and the architectural characteristics of the whole building complex. The existing building was stripped back to the core construction. Using the existing facade structure as a starting point, the façade was reinterpreted and the interior layout reconfigured.
