Designed by Eßmann, Gärtner, Nieper, Architekten, the new building for construction industry mixing equipment specialist Collomix is on three levels plus an underground car park. The first two levels are built of exposed concrete, with large windows and a double-height entrance area, creating a calm commercial presence. This contrasts with the dramatic ‘box’ – clad entirely in green pre-patinated copper punctuated by vertical windows – which sits independently on top, overhanging and sheltering the main entrance. At either end, the box opens up to provide white-framed balcony areas with extensive glazing beyond.
A new company headquarters in Ingolstadt, Bavaria, makes a bold statement with an offset, green copper box on top.
