Office building in Bern
North of Lausanne, the architects of Jacques Richter and Ignacio Dahl Rocha designed a building exclusively dedicated administrative use.
From monolithic concrete volume, the architects achieved a highly dynamic work as a game using a lens hood, which gives life to the whole.
It is located on the outskirts of the city of Lausanne, on one of the main access roads from north, Route de Berne 46, a route with high traffic flow.
On three sides, the building is presented as a concrete monolith, while its main facade, facing the road, is radically different. This side wall is composed entirely of glass protected by a series of mobile vertical visors aluminum and glass.
Its simple volumetry derives in part from the following functional limitations of the program, comprising of office spaces, and the other part of the urban community department rules that determined the shape of the building and the construction of the attic.
