Swiss Stem Cells Institute – Lugano

It is the headquarters of the Swiss Stem Cell Foundation – a foundation dedicated to research into the scientific applications of stem cells.

The building houses laboratories and offices. This is a stepped building composed of two distinct bodies. The volume at the height of the road is more massive and organizes the entrance, welcomes meeting rooms and is equipped with a practicable roof-terrace; the volume at the upper level is defined by the alternation of partitions and glazed parts with a width of 1 meter, hosting laboratories and offices. The whole building is in reinforced concrete facing facades.
