New building for the « Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier » (CSSF)

architecture + aménagement s.a. as Architects

The building is the result of a collaboration between “architecture + aménagement” (Luxembourg) and “JSWD Architekten” (Cologne, Germany). The project was awarded the first Prize of the competition in 2012.


The form of the building follows the specific contours of the building site, defined by two important roads in the western part of Luxembourg City. The former bank building has been demolished and replaced by a brand new construction.


The building is designed around a central courtyard, which offers nice views and plenty of light to the public areas, hallways and the restaurant.


The façade is specific to the project and consists of a repetition of vertical, precast, white concrete parts. The aim of the composition is to install a new rhythm along the “Route d’Arlon”, to allow a maximum of daylight in the office spaces, while still offering a relatively comfortable level of privacy. This repetition of the façade also permits a great modularity and flexibility in the organization and divisions of the office floors, without immediately showing these functions and subdivisions on the outside.
