Text description provided by the architects. The former cloth factory “Tuchfabrik“ in Berlin appears now in a fresh, attractive look. Before entering the building, the visitor is going one step back into the history by looking at the new façade: for its design the architects used digital printed panels with patterns of yarn bundles as a reminiscence of the original building’s utilization. Tightly interwoven threads are shimmering in different colours on the grey-black background like an oversized tribute to the history of this place. The particularity of the solution lies in the application of light aluminium sandwich panels. The printing motives on each of the 440 sheets are unique – thus every panel has its own ID as well as its own allocation.

Constructed in 1966 in the north of Berlin and in close proximity to Tegel airport, the unpretentious factory complex consisted once of two volumes – the office and the production parts. During the renovation process the architects connected both parts into one unit. Since the existing construction could not bear high loads, very light aluminium sandwich panels were used and installed on the punctuated façade. As a completion to the new look of the Tuchfabrik big avant-garde Rodtschenko letters are emphasizing the entry area.
