This new office building completes the factory from its northern side. It is a two storey building with prefabricated concrete construction and monolithic concrete ceilings based on a module of 4x 4 meters. The whole building is enclosed inside a concrete block with three openings. There is a leisure terrace for the managers offices situated in the first one, which also prevents them from being exposed to western sunlight. The second opening is situated in the middle of the buildings and defines a conservatory. The last one is on the east side and is filled with large tree.
The main northern facade of the building is defined by a periodic order of windows. This facade is quite unique because it's constructed as a single window frame with divisions. It is composed of opaque wooden panels that can be opened and fixed glass panels. The whole facade is underlined by a black metal sheet of a handrail which also serves for a logo of the company. The concrete construction of the building is exposed from the interior as well. The wooden formwork made for ceilings was used for walls as well to achieve the wood-like surface. The prefabricated concrete staircase is painted orange as a highlight of the interior. All the doors are metal with color defined by certain order. The entrance door is black, the office doors are in bright colors and a service rooms doors are white. The interior was designed with intention to make the perfect working environment. All the workplaces have enough daylight, possibility to get fresh air by windows and combination of nice colors and massive wood.
We appreciate we could work on this building all the way till the inside fitting and we are still in a good relation with the investors.
