From the architect. Neither a factory nor an office building this freestanding pavilion introduces a new typology to the factory campus. Urbanistically, the new restaurant helps to complete the entrance courtyard spatially. Formally, its crystalline pentagon plan is a continuation of the crystalline ground plans of the new (existing) office building it is adjacent to. This structure is low lying and integrated closely with the campus landscape.

A floating roof hovers over the central dining space and mezzanine that are located in an excavated hollow. Of paramount importance is the formation of the roof. A series of studies investigated natural biological forms including leaf structures, sponges, spirals and webs. 

After a planning workshop with the structural engineer a preferred scheme emerged for a triangulated folded plate whose primary structure is steel. Within these triangular fields polygonal cells are inserted providing skylighting and natural ventilation.

Nearly 700 seats are available during regular operation in the restaurant area and on the south-facing terrace. If necessary, the interior can be transformed into an auditorium for events with up to 800 participants.

Absolutely love the entry to the second level. The voronoi and sloppy structure connecting to ground plane I can easily live w/o.

The pattern of the roof reminds me of many things you've posted recently. Organic-looking geometry seems to be a bit of a trend.

With no malice intended, I just had an architectural orgasm after looking at this.

Excellent articulation of space!
