Concrete Quarterly

Final frame

Werk 12, Munich

This mixed-use building, containing restaurants, offices and a three-storey gym, has been inspired by the reuse of old concrete-framed factories. The in-situ concrete slabs at Werk 12 are 5.5m apart, allowing the addition of mezzanine levels, and all of the circulation is via an external core and 3.25m terraces. The facade incorporates verbal expressions found in German comics, projecting a playful attitude.
