A new production hall in Lower Bavaria constructed by ip company, a North German window manufacturer, is a greenfield project in a business park in the market town of Langquaid. The hall brings together several different functions under one roof: production facilities, staff rooms and showroom. The geometry of this long building is determined by the production processes involved in window manufacture. The hall is divided by a block with the staff rooms and offices separating the production area from the showroom. This block has dark panelling on the one side and the colour code of the product range on the other.
A façade of multi-skin sheets provides uniform, glare-free light in the factory area. On the side towards the street, the façade is broken up by long, narrow ribbon windows, and on the opposite side by high, almost square doors. The front of the building and the delivery doors are covered in vertical silver-grey patina spruce formwork, giving the building a beginning and an end. The façade projects above the entrance area, protecting visitors from rain and snow should the skies not be in traditional Bavarian white and blue.
