Translucent new commercial building

Carolinen – Mineralquellen Wüllner GmbH, Bielefeld

Initial thoughts of making the company's product discernable in the building's form, as in the shape of water drops, were discarded. So we developed the horizontal tube shape, like a pipe which, set upon V-supports, appears to float above the sloping site. Parallel to Detmolder Strasse, the two fully glazed ends of the tube open up views out into the landscape.

This project was discussed in the network series “wieweiterarbeiten – Workspaces of the Future”.
