Sotax AG Headquarters, Aesch BL
Straightforwardness reflected in the façades
Sotax AG, «Solutions for Pharmaceutical Testing», is consolidating its head office in a new complex in Aesch. This will comprise an office building and an operating plant as well as a simple warehouse.
Elegance and reduction to what is functionally and aesthetically essential are the stand-out features of the four-storey office building in its exterior and interior structures. The exterior is characterised by the concrete floor slabs which protrude slightly and emphasise the horizontal. These are matched by the continuous, floor-to-ceiling window strips which form a vertical dimension.
Reserve space is already built in, for example on the 3rd floor where there is still over 200 m2 of free space. The warehouse can be replaced by a multi-storey building if the need arises.
