The most recent addition to the factory is a 2,300 sq. meter former stall which is being renovated and significantly added to. Architecturally it retains its historic form of a gable roofed agricultural building. In this sense the building mediates formally between the adjacent farm buildings off-site and the industrial buildings on-site. This form is exaggerated in its lineal 112 meters x 8.5 form and the abstract rendering of random punched wooden windows over a zinc shingle cladding.
Two large cutout terraces framed in larch compliment these oversized windows. Structurally the new gable form is framed by steel tube arches, which are spanned by hollow wooden plank-beams. Programmatically this structure houses training rooms and a loft-like cafeteria at the upper level.
As a long lineal building it forms a cohesive edge defining the campus west boundary while framing the terraced space between itself and the paint shop.
