The building draws its references from the Swiss timber construction tradition,as found for instance in the Appenzell region. At the same time, the cassettes express a construction method that uses a highly mechanised process.
To prevent standing water, the façade jumps two centimetres forwards with every horizontal upward shift. The overhang created in this way can hardly be
seen, yet it strengthens the presence of the building with its projecting roof.
The dark red tone of the façade also characterises the rest of the building. It is thus used in the interior for the jambs of the windows and doors, as well as
the wardrobes and skirting boards.
