Vital Building

This is the headquarters of the local savings bank. The building reproduces the scale of the surrounding small woods, a park of the Nature 2000 networking program. The structural concept is based on pairs of exterior metal supports, clad in stainless steel composite panels. One of the arms has been conceived as a 26-meter cantilever. In this case, the concept changes and the pairs do not have any structural function.

A double height hall located in the heart of the building has its two façades enclosed by a work of art. They have been constructed with bright red polyurethane panels with a manually painted biological pattern.

The idea is to identify the building as a live organism in motion. A black skin made of glass protects the inhabited spaces behind the stainless steel pairs.
