General Consulate of Switzerland Munich
Prime objective of the conversion of the Swiss General Consulate in Munich was to achieve a maximum architectural openness, while providing the highest security standards. The bullet-proof glass of the security counter stays nearly invisible and is framed by a video and LED installation showing an alpine panorama. The graphic concept plays with the Swiss colours as well as with the Bavarian – or northern alpine colours – white-blue.
