Domino-Bauten, Bern

Urban character

Architectural urban icons were created in the Bernese district of Wankdorf in 2008 with the two buildings FEUSI and MEDI. The buildings are situated near the Max-Daetwyler-Platz and create an urban presence with a dominant and contemporary expressive force.

The facade of the Domino building is indisputably impressive. Its highest section stretches up over 8 floors in a similar structure from the bottom up, which is characterised by its freely selected alternating order and grid-like layout. It displays a clever interplay of lightness and load. The openness of the facade counteracts the immensity of the concrete. The entire construction of the facade is a successful balance. The remarkable nature of the design is further enhanced by the surface treatment. The fine pigmentation of the faceal Colour concrete glaze gives the facade a fine light grey finish. The uniform look accentuates the quiet feel of the overall impression.
