Administrative and industrial building HOLDIBAT, Forel VD
Pragmatic angular design produces elegant form
Forel lies to the north east of Lausanne. A new administrative and industrial building is under construction in the industrial area.
The outline of the building is slightly angled in order to make the best possible use of the land available. The structure is simple and linear. The vertically divided façade has long window strips.
The height of the building at 10.5 metres offers space for a warehouse and workshop as well as two office floors. The top floor offers a cafeteria and terrace, a conference room and further office space. The underground car park makes maximum use of the space available.
The internal organisation is defined by the three service cores which divide the space and serve as acoustic filters between the various types of use.
