Excerpt from the jury report
"...The architectural configuration creates an exciting entrance hall that allows an ideal orientation of the visitor. From the entrance, the view is directed into the open garden courtyard, which strengthens the nice, open atmosphere of the lobby. The circulation sequence starts at the paved forecourt, crosses the lobby and the inner courtyard and leads to the individual offices via well-structured corridors. This represents a sucessful contribution to the quality of the work environment by positively ritualizing the daily routes... The authors have succeded in creating an architecturally outstanding design, which is well realizable too."
