Ricola Marketing Building
Baselstrasse 31, Laufen, 1998
herzog de meuron, Basel

Instead of a multistory volume that would dominate the architectural landscape, we chose a low polygonal installation that fits into Ricola's garden area like a pavilion. An architecture in which form and geometry did not immediately reveal themselves. One which, thanks to its turned-back façades, dissolves into single pieces. Each piece has the distinct characteristic of either surrounding, reflecting or projecting far into the building's interior a special view into the garden.
