Slats play in the wind

An architectural gem! The main building in coloured concrete was completed and decorated with Corten steel. The construction is built on a metal support structure. The twisted slats are loosely suspended and can move freely in the wind, playing an unpredictable game. In order to give the Corten steel the right patina from the start, the whole was chemically aged. The invisible fastenings and the architectural detailing contribute to a high quality finish.
