In order to increase the thermal performance of the building, while giving it a new look, the thermal insulation was affixed to the existing exterior walls. A Firestone membrane wraps the building insulation and was fastened with LED “buttons” creating a sort of mattress effect. The blue LEDs animate the building at night.

The open plan office floors allow for a maximum of flexibility. The interior courtyard allows for plentiful light, and the wood paneling creates a warm and relaxing space for the building’s occupants.
