unit-design is developing the communication concept for European Investment Bank’s new building in Luxemburg. The activities under development for the building and accompanying media emphasise how the company perceives itself and the autonomy of the new build being planned by Ingenhoven Architekten.
A dot matrix is conceptually projected through the building and permits, through graduated dot dimensions, a perceptible and seamless positioning and hierarchisation of each individual activity. The dot becomes the common denominator of a symbol and graphic language, which lends the building a friendly and lively image. Strong colours and a vigorously used system of pictograms, along with the ‘speaking building’ concept emphasise the work of Ingenhoven Architekten.
Covering an area of approx. 71,500 m2, the new headquarters of the European Investment Bank is located in Luxembourg’s European Quarter and comprises three sections – the main building, an extension and the new part recently completed by Ingenhoven Architekten.
