The first thing that strikes you about this building is its unique wooden trelliswork façade. In addition to its functional purpose, the warp and weft suggested by the open woodwork pattern is intended to convey the impression of a fabric weave, suggesting a brand statement for the building’s inhabitant, the major fashion and textiles house Hugo Boss. Set at a slight distance from the central core, outside a balcony that runs right around the building, the façade shields it from rain and the heat of the sun, redoubling the protective action of the glass curtain wall within. In a glass cuboid in prefabricated steel, wood and concrete elements for fast, cost-effective on-site assembly, the building’s houses a reception, conference room and showroom on the ground floor, while the first and second floors are open office workspaces, all set around a central atrium flooded with natural light from a large overhead skylight.
