New building of Drehmo GmbH in Wenden
„form follows site“
In Wenden, the southernmost town of the german region of Sauerland electromechanical actuators for water management, the power plant sector and the oil and gas industry are manufactured.
The special cut of the new building of the Drehmo GmbH is owed the topographical situation in this region. The moving landscape caused the terracing of the landscape and produces irregularly shaped lot. The unusual floor plan, generated by this contour, and the hillside situation with a view over the valley determine the character and exceptional styling.
The basic arrangement consists of the assembly hall with the affiliated areas of the loading bay and an automatic shelf storage. The two-story administrative wing situated in front of the assembly hall forms with this an entrance situation. The basement accommodates staff rooms and the canteen, which is naturally lit via a courtyard and expands into this free area with glazing from floor to ceiling.
The roof with an oversized, band-like Attica spans the entire complex. This band is different in height, as it flows to the building around. The homogeneous materiality of the attic, roof soffits, columns and parts of the wall covering, using lighter aluminum expanded metal panels, the corporeal of construction is emphasized.
Constructively effective struts inclined tension between the individual levels or to ground, forming a kind of contemporary framework, it acts like a muscle, supporting and shaping at the same time. A bright expanded metal, even in details processed accurately, draws sharp the contours and ridges.
Inside contrast light wooden floors with large exposed concrete surfaces. Spacious air spaces and the two-story atrium enable always new, surprising perspectives. Slanted concrete columns, already nested in itself, create dynamic images in the overlay.
