The office building and artist atelier was completed in 2008 and it recently won the 2010 ‘Built Environment’ award from the Zumtobel Group. The project is composed of two volumes joined by a metal footbridge above an internal plaza. The front volume is raised and rests on pillars, while the back volume is set on a solid foundation and includes a ‘bird-like’ feature on the roof. Large windows, operable shutters and terraces allow daylight to penetrate the interior spaces and lend the building a feeling of lightness.
