The office buildings are located in a redeveloped industriual area in the heart of the city, called Millenaris Park. They are surrounded by a large city park and playground. The seemengly separate volumes are connected by an underground garage. The Modern building is covered with black ceramic sheets, the Avant Garde is covered by grey ones. The building envelope contains as much transparent surfaces as possible obtaining the most possible energy in wintertime and with outside shading controlling the heat transmission in summertime. Today Avant Garde operates as rented offices while the “Modern” building was purchased by the European Union.
