Category: Windows and facades
Year of construction: 2010 - 2011
Location: St. Gallen
Owner: Baudepartement Kanton St. Gallen

After demolishing two buildings at the corner of Obere Graben and Frongartenstrasse in St. Gallen the new administrative center of Obere Graben was built. The building is accented by its large box windows of architectural bronze, planned, produced and installed by Tuchschmid. The special, patterned metal frame is reminiscent of the flower embroidery typical to the region of St. Gallen. The new building has 181 straight and 33 curved bronze windows of varying sizes with heights up to 2.6m and widths up to 2.8 m.
