The exterior of the publishing company’s annex gives off a sunny fresh impression thanks to the light yellow large format ceramic panels. At the same time, the combination with dark window elements and a sophis ticated steel structure for the glass surfaces exudes an air of solidity. Box-like projecting window soffits are vaguely reminiscent of Le Corbusier’s designs. The stretched, continuous rows of windows, which are also carried through systematically as corner solutions, give the building a structure that borders on the austere. The steel-glass construction also serves as a uniform cladding for the top floor, which is slightly set back.
