High architectural demands in terms of geometrical clarity and simplicity, spatial transparency and the selected materiality proved to be a real challenge for designing the support structure. Not only did it have to be adjusted to the flowing space continuum but also to the existing support structure of the building: a ferroconcrete skeleton construction from the 1960s. For earthquake safety reasons, no extra loads could be imposed on the original building.
The result is a subtly balanced steel structure, which becomes practically invisible behind the carefully planned expansion.
