The façade as a dress - the façade of the new FHNW Campus in Muttenz consists exclusively of glass and anodised aluminium, which cover the entire building. Aluminium pilaster strips, 30 cm deep and 6 cm wide profiles, give the façade a strong vertical appearance, while the horizontality of the floors penetrates outwards through the interplay of glass and aluminium.

All the aluminium elements are anodised in BWB bronze, making the building look timeless and grounded.
