Contrary to the classical buildings of the tertiary sector, the present work is entirely made of wood and natural insulator (cellulose wadding and wood fibre) to highlight the eco-friendly approach of the company. Thanks to the “skin” made of larch scales, the building is singled out and visible in the middle of a small industrial estate at the bottom of the Ortenbourg castle.
