PET-Recycling plant


Germany, Übach-Palenberg, execution 2017-2018


Spotlights of the axially routed access road are the stainless steel silos in front of the plant   as well as the gatehouse functioning as concise verticals in a mainly horizontal rhythm and spatial/ photometrical concentration. A flying roof provides weather protection and accentuates the gatehouse’s relative small volume.”Green Flakes” were stuffed inside a 9 x 3 m glass partition wall and can be illuminated naturally by sunlight or artificially by LED thereby communicate the plants mission both from the inside and from far away.
