This garden in the middle of the building will be the envy of urban and hobby gardeners. Because it is a striking eye-catcher and as unique and refreshing as an oasis in every respect. Just the sight of green plant life lowers the pulse and brightens the spirit. Plants emanate tranquility. And here at Bahnhofstrasse 45, in the newly refurbished headquarters, the entire ground floor of the more than century-old building is bathed in a unique atmosphere.
The thick greenery is clearly structured in a geometric diamond pattern, giving the miniature park in the heart of the building a distinctive look – and not just on the ground floor. Individual tall broad-leafed trees bring the garden all the way to the top story of the UBS headquarters.
The visitor’s gaze is magically drawn to the various plants embedded behind glass in a cube between white natural stones. This dialogue between architecture and nature connects the world of slowly growing organisms and that of rapidly developing banks, symbolizing the dynamic context in which UBS is succeeding today.
