Hilti Art Foundation (White Cube, Vaduz)

Lasa marble chippings for the building of the Hilti Art Foundation and Huber Fine Watches & Jewellery

After a planning and construction period of almost eight years, an exceptional building, the "White Cube", has been shining since June 2015 in the heart of Vaduz. The 20 metre high building, a futuristic cubic building, is an extension of the adjacent black Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein. The striking new building consists of a solid concrete construction in white. For the white concrete façade, Lasa Marmo supplied around 1,100 tonnes of the finest Lasa marble chippings as an additive. The white concrete was produced on site and poured into the building fabric. Finally, the façade of white concrete was honed.
