with Livio Vacchini
The special feature of the narrow, very long plot is exaggerated in the project. The steep exterior staircase on the longitudinal façade, which connects Freie Strasse with Münsterhügel, is adopted inside. As an architectural walkway, it leads from the entrance to the 5th floor and enables the perception of height and depth of the space.
