(“Text as submitted by the Architects”)
When the management of a 30-year-old company dealing with LTO (data storage magnetic tape) changed, the opportunity to renovate an older branch building and turn it into its headquarters presented itself. The existing mechanical parking lot was converted into an exhibition space for customers to enjoy and for employees to interact. Its peculiar metal mesh facade was redesigned to represent the company’s new face. The existing framework was utilized while new elements were added to embody the company’s spirit of learning from the past.
