The interior design started on a fl oor of the building that was still a shell. Creating one long corridor for circulation made it possible to conceal the shafts, while a stretch ceiling proved the ideal solution for resolving acoustical problems. An existing collection of African art was integrated in the interior design and set the mood for the choice of materials such as tropical palmwood. A black-lacquered glass partition allows the collection of African art to come to the fore. Lighting by Modular completes the furnishing and creates the right accents.
