The dynamic figure of the existing staircase was emphasized with a series of coloured bands that mediate between the scale of the building and of the individual. The walls and ceiling are kept white to accentuate the striking colours that are chosen to provide a vibrant polychromatic experience. The circular lighting elements designed by Louise Witthöft complement the formal strategy and illuminate the atrium. At the opposite end of the building, a light well was conceived as a complementary figure, coloured yellow in its entirety to provide a warm illumination for this area without windows.
