FAMBAU Genossenschaft is committed to providing attractive and affordable housing for families. For the replacement construction of the office building in the heart of the Fellergut district in Bümpliz, the needs of employees and office users were in the foreground for once.

The bronze cuboid is characterised by an overhanging exterior façade made of perforated aluminium. The flexible sun protection system from Colt International AG fulfils aesthetic and functional requirements in equal measure: 74 movable colour-anodised aluminium slats automatically follow the position of the sun, thereby ensuring an ideal indoor climate.
