The new office building for a department of the Ministry of Water Management has been designed with the infrastructural works of this Ministry in mind: powerful and functional. In a robust nine-story volume a façade of circular windows, blue ceramic tiles and four black plaster towers, has been combined with open office floors. Thus combining a characteristic appearance with generic use.
