Barreca & La Varra contributed to the declination of the Siemens design guidelines Construction Excellence Office Building, especially regarding the composition of the volumes, the façade and the layout of the windows.
Statement of the jury
The Siemens headquarters stands out with intelligently- arranged volumes. The irregularly-placed windows are an effective means of breaking up the image of the facade, together with the light and dark surfaces. A friendly, modern and high-quality design that also reflects the expectation of high functionality.
