Finanzgebäude Kt. Luzern
Despite not being used extensively, the loft at the financial offices for the canton of Lucerne has several positive spatial qualities. It is a continuous space that is clearly divided by the building structure and is organised around an inner courtyard. The “La Vague” project – inspired by the painting of the same name by Matisse – allows the interior architectural qualities of the loft to emerge. The spatial continuity is further reinforced by free-form plaster cladding. The mobile furniture is an important design element and supports the fluidity of the space. A continuous line of windows illuminates the office areas and allows for a close rapport with the newly designed courtyard. A mobile sun sail creates shadow in the summer and offers protection from the heat. The new space allows for concentrated work in an atmosphere that stimulates creativity and fantasies.
