– The challenge for this project was to bridge a gap between two blocks with very different typologies. Since we wanted to design them as monochrome units with the same material on roof and façades the choice fell on steel, says Rahel Belatchew, Principal Architect and CEO, Belatchew Arkitekter.

– We spent some time looking for the right yellow tint. The Harvest Yellow color is bright and warm at the same time, Rahel Belatchew concludes.
