The existing zoning required a building of less than ten meters in height. Parking was required at a rate of one car for every three employees on site, including existing uses. The building is to house various working groups which require "changeable" office planning in a way which will allow them to demonstrate and experiment with their own furniture lines. The offices also become showrooms, so a relatively neutral space was designed for this program element. Much research was done to investigate state-of-the-art office space before the project began. As a result, "combi office" and "office landscape" types will be accommodated as well as more traditional closed and open offices. The strict energy codes of Switzerland mandate that there be no air-conditioning for offices, so natural ventilation is accommodated by opening windows and the entirely shaded south wall under the large wing shaped canopy.
