    This intervention consists in the refurbishment of the communal parts and of office interior of a 19th century building, siege of a prestigious financial holding company, operating locally as well as throughout Europe. The presentation of the corporate image of KB1909 was inserted into a broader interior architectural discourse, representing the ambitions of the company and harmonizing them into an existing context. Minimum placement of light sources and simple geometric elements, bear witness to the sober style of the company, and accompany the visitor in its vertical ascent from the street to the offices. The new wing of the offices poposes a new image through custom furniture and light design, while offering a continuing floor design with the old part of the offices.
