© BOLLES+WILSON

BOLLES + WILSON recently received an ‘International Architecture Award 2012‘ for their design of a new headquarter for a concrete plant in , Germany. The building, which is highlighted by an optimal concrete beam, is a combination of the existing vertical cement silo complimented by a new horizontal administration deck. The deck hovers, cantilevering dramatically over green fields (entrance side) and also symmetrically out over a re-naturalized cement quarry (wildlife protection zone). More images and architects’ description after the break.
