Tamedia New Office Building / タメディア新本社

Zurich, Switzerland / チューリッヒ、スイス

One of the main features of the project is indeed the proposition of a main structural system entirely designed in timber where its innovative character from a technical and environmental standpoint, gives the building a unique appearance from the interior space as well as from the surrounding city. In order to reinforce and express this idea the building skin is entirely glazed and special attention was given to achieve low energy transmission levels that respond to the latest and very strict Swiss regulations for energy consumption.
