Text description provided by the architects. 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.
