Electing to retain the old building gave rise to the solution of light weight metal panels covering the old parts. Thus, the new office building is a renovation exercise leveraging an exciting skeleton structure to transform an old structure into a modern five-story office building.
Building materials were chosen according to their ecological suitability, the most visible element being a panel facade made entirely of various metal sheets including roof corrugated panels in different colors. The design of metal facade combines a high degree of thermal insulation with strategies of intelligent engineering. The space underneath the new building provides covered parking for vehicles.
