The Sati building carries a coffee plant which opens towards the sky. Water streams underneath and the flower is surrounded by sun light. There is enough space and freedom for its unlimited development. Although nature has been the model for its shape, the exact symmetry serves as a calm anchor and the neat implementation shows how nature and industry can work together and benefit each other.
The sun nurtures the phosphoric color field with energy during the day. Once the sun sets, the flower opens into a new linear form and displays how the sun’s energy is processed. At nightfall the luminescence fades and the flower descends into the resting city.
The two levels provide the viewer with the opportunity to see behind the surface of the facade and refer to the liveliness of the city and its buildings—even if it’s not visible at the first glance.
