EFAFLEX plant

Baden / Lower Austria

2004

The site is located in a business park. On account of the lack of built context, the building configuration was derived from its program: an office with a view on the upper level, a storage space on the ground floor. Raising the office zone requires a slightly more elaborate means of construction, but provides the opportunity to survey the operations and the well-lit spaces. The massing on the upper level shelters the entrance area below. The offices on the upper level are glazed floor-to-ceiling on three sides. Skylights above the stairs and the break room allow additional light to enter the heart of the office zone. The activity and the production in the main hall can be surveyed from a window in the office. The building is sheathed in a matt, metallic panel skin.
