Laufen building wins architecture award

Swiss bathroom manufacturer Laufen has received a top architectural award for its new exhibition and visitor centre.

Laufen building wins architecture award

The Laufen Forum building at the manufacturer’s headquarters in Switzerland, is a virtually window-less, two-storey concrete structure which when viewed from above looks like one of Laufen’s washbasins.

On a slope with natural light flooding into the atrium via skylights in the roof, the building requires minimum heating and no air conditioning.

The Award for Marketing and Architecture annually acknowledges those who have planned and built properties in Switzerland based on the properties of high-quality corporate architecture.
