Their new headquarters is located at a boundary between an industrial area and farmland, meaning it belongs to both industrial and natural landscapes. The aim of the project was to interface both landscapes and acknowledge their different qualities and values.

The volume of the building is designed to bring the two landscapes inside and integrate them in the new spaces. The building consists of two shifted longitudinal volumes linked by an entrance hall.As a result, two internal open spaces have been created. The designers worked to develop a reduced scale, i.e. the human scale, as opposed to the large-scale industrial area. While one courtyard is hard, lined with trees and conceived as a living area, the other courtyard is soft, entirely green and free, with an open view east, facing the manufacturing facilities and the mountains towards the Slovenian border.
