The client is the leading manufacturer of system technology for the textile industry. This central logistics yard has been designed as a component of expansion plans for the campus as a whole.
The design conciously leaves a gap between the proposed roof and the neighbouring historical buildngs. Inspired by the clients activities in the textile industry the membrane roof provides an elegant and light-weight canopy for the delivery and shipping of good. Furthermore, the design sets a clear signal for the technologial and future-oriented development of the factory while respecting the protected-heritage.
In addition a proposal was designed showing how a new production hall could be developed on the basis of the historic existing building fabric. Again the suggestion plays with a strong contrast between old and new with membrane spanned frames seemingly resting on the existing single story brickwork.
