Swiss Embassy in New Delhi
gta Verlag
A Tropical House
The Swiss Embassy in New Delhi, opened in 1963, is one of the most prominent examples of modern Swiss representative architecture. As an architectural symbol of the political friendship between an old and a young democracy, Hans Hofmann's building bears witness to the examination of India's cultural, architectural and climatic conditions. The publication, conceived and designed by C2F, was created on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Swiss Embassy in New Delhi. In a richly pictured book, C2F has presented the planning and building history as well as the political and cultural context.

Stadt Luzern, Stadt Kriens, Stadt Zug
Design of Swiss cities
A visual identity for a city must convey its self-image and values to the outside world in a credible manner. This requires a sensitive approach to the various stakeholders, topics and fields of action. C2F realized the redesign for the city of Lucerne. For the city of Kriens, C2F has defined the new self-image as a city in a new, urban look. For the city of Zug, C2F has connected the different facets of the city with the line as an essential feature of the new appearance, and clarified the city's idea of progress.
