description
In order to enlarge a rolling mill in the outskirts of Bönen (Germany), the project looks for an opposition to the existing: while the old concrete bay is low, heavy and flat-roofed, the new bay is a higher metallic two slopes cover building.
The metallic plate that covers the whole building is horizontal in the facades, except for the sidewalls, in which it follows the roof slopes. This gives a sense of lightness and movement to the building, which seems optically divided in two halves.
