FUNKT was contracted for the reconstruction of the administrative building of a production warehouse, the refurbishment of its staff facilities, a new outdoor rest area, and new entrances and landscaping works. To reduce building waste, the glazing of the original building was dismantled and reincorporated into a new patchwork façade of solids and voids. Тhe supporting metal frame elements were fully manufactured on site by the factory’s craftsmen, as the client was also the contractor, and the design was considered so as to allow the workers to implement it on site.
