The five-storey office building located right on Hardbrücke bridge boasts stylish use of materials in its outer cladding. The natural-stone façade in pale Ceppo di Gré is accentuated with sanded Belgian bluestone in secondary structures. The vast, anodised window façades in BWB-Argentan skilfully round off the exterior look, providing more than just aesthetic added value; the filigree Reynaers aluminium system profiles also offer impressive soundproofing and security.
