Text description provided by the architects. A cohesive overall concept for a showroom, office and outdoor area was devised for the door and window manufacturer ip company®.

One of the main requirements was that the existing building structure should remain as unchanged as possible. To meet this requirement a façade using modern materials was placed in front of the building.

The first design task was to model the façade. Oblique cut outs were inserted in it to define the window zones and to achieve a greater dynamic effect. The façade was made with Promeda boards with brown chestnut veneer décor.

The different window and door constructions were shown on four wall panels in the simple and elegant showroom. The view of the production space from the showroom established a further connection with the manufacturer.
