Two lightly bent, elongated volumes of different heights restructure Buchegg Park. The six-storey building on Hofwiesenstrasse is oriented towards the park as well as to the street. It borders off the park from the street and protects it from the street noise. The facades are formed by the protracting balconies and the concrete bands that wrap horizontally around the building. Between them storey-height windows and alternately coloured glass panels form together with sliding anti-sun and screening glass panels an interplay of reflecting and matt, translucent and transparent coloured surfaces. The colour concept was developed together with the artist Adrian Schiess. Facing the street the glazing is dark blue and violet while facing the park the colour tones progress over large spaces from blue tones to green and then red. The impression of the fluent, changing play of colours is enhanced by the varying positions of the sliding elements.
