The signage for the exterior of the building that houses Regensdorf’s district administration employs the same material used in the façade of the new extension. The lettering has been crafted of horizontal strips that evoke Venetian blinds, causing the individual letters to appear darker than the building itself. The horizontal strips also repeat the lined pattern of the floors in the building‘s entrance. The lettering in the building’s interior was designed in metallic hues in reference to the exterior space.
In collaboration with fokusform, the sign “Regensdorf” was created expressly for the building. “Regensdorf” is made of acrylic panel and is used for the flexible sign system for the offices.
