Do industrial buildings have to be dull? Not necessarily, if we rely on this project by Danish architects, KHR Arkitekter. The combined production and administration building for fiberglass manufacturer Fiberline, stands as a piece of identity-generating ‘countryside-art’ by the motorway close to Middelfart. Like a hill the building grows out of the landscape and arches its back against the sky.

The building is designed to optimize the production flow in the factory. The building’s height is defined by a high bay warehouse for various uses. The stock room is integrated into the building’s architecture as a dynamic and central installation.

Three large cuts in the building let in the light and create a varied working light that illuminates the white glass threads, which constitute most of the production.
