The large point-fixed façade of Citco headquarters is the ideal backdrop for the suspended meeting room, cladded with metal sheet and made even more striking by the custom designed laser pattern, protruding four metres from the building. The façade is 55 metres long and 9 metres high. It consists of 2.50 metres glass panels secured to a steel substructure. The panels reveal a corridor running along the front of the building, which the staggered variable size windows bring to life.
On a composition point of view, the geometric shapes of the pattern of the meeting room cladding complement the dynamism of the openings of the prospect behind.
The original spiral staircase was designed by architect Ferruccio Laviani and built by Nicolli using metal sheet, curved and shaped to drawing, with Lasa marble covering.
