Valcon - workplace design

The project created visual coherence and transparency in a significant building form, characterised by an 8-shaped infinite flow. The building's particularities were highlighted for maximum impact by colouring the core areas and surrounding support functions with the historic building's original wall colours. This clear and comprehensive approach created a connection between disparate functions, and it was in this encounter that the detailing emerged.
