A circulating band unites all different shaped building parts. It forms a
shade made of vertically slats, which, as an upstream element, covers the company building. Its upper edges respond to neighbouring building heights. Due to various slat spacings, the shade can be designed permeable while differentiated external references can be generated. The striking wooden band becomes the trademark of the building. By applying graphic prints it can also be used as a large, widely visible advertising banner.
