Apical Reform’s self-designed new headquarters are distinguished by a striking slatted facade that serves dual purposes. Visually, it creates a soft fabric-like illusion as if it the entire inner structure were draped over. Functionally, it creates a shaded barrier for the interior without completely obstructing views of the surrounding landscape. Depending on the time of day, the vertical slats restrict or allow light to permeate depending on the sun’s position. The seemingly random waves seem ever-changing, almost flowing, as shadows and highlights move along the surface.
