Enhancing the buildings heritage

A careful design of the new slim window frames, together with the new inner business lounge intended as an urban greenhouse, all reflect the strong characterization of the building and some of its unusual internal spaces. Together they are design to enhance and invite people to explore the uniqueness of this magnificent building.
