Conversion and redesign of the office for Das Linthwerk
The history of the Linth canal and the pioneering work of Hans Konrad Escher are a constant presence throughout the Linthverwaltung management offices. A selection of pictures on the walls tell this story. In the conversion concept, the colours correlate with the pictures and continue the story: in the entrance space, a warm brown tone nods to the Sidelhorn panorama by Hans Konrad Escher, while the meeting room in blue symbolises the water of the Linth canal. Colours, lights and furniture unite to create a harmonious and character-defining design. The conversion concept also includes a new acoustic ceiling, new parquet floor and replacement of the electrical wiring.
