Altdorf – the main town in the Swiss canton of Uri and the founding location of the Urner Kantonalbank [UKB] – is located to the South of Lake Lucerne, surrounded by an impressive mountain panorama. Last spring, this bank, the regional market leader, relocated to its new head office at Bahnhofsplatz, the square by the railway station. For this, durlum supplied an appropriately designed ceiling solution, in part with integrated luminaires.
The multi-directional TICELL-N open-cell ceiling extends across the entrance area, the cafeteria and the washroom areas, showcasing the modern design of these interior spaces with a playfully light touch. Seemingly ‘braided’, the aluminium surface of this ceiling is structured using a specialist process so that the stamped edges reflect the flow of light. This achieves optimum light permeability. The light and airy character of this new building is enhanced by the LUMEO luminaires located between the concrete and open-cell ceiling. The large free cross section of the ceiling and the perforation of the louvres creates an atmosphere comprising smooth transitions. Here too, the primary lighting source is provided by the LED luminaires.
