The strictly functional aesthetics of this administrative building in an industrial area on the outskirts of the city are chosen to represent a manufacturer of heavy industrial machinery. A clearly recognisable steel framework defines the pattern into which all of the building's elements, including the building services, fit visibly.

Architect: Ian Mark Shaw
