Trilogy of facade steel for Christmas light manufacturer

This lighting company, which specialises in illuminating public and commercial spaces, has had its new headquarters built on the edge of a residential area. Steel predominates, and the 154-tonne steel skeleton is a reference to the saddleback roofs typical of the surrounding area. Two gantries made of hot-rolled S235 steel with a span of 12.5 metres generate various roof areas over a length of more than 100 metres, giving rise to a 22,000 m³ anthracite-coloured space for the storage and maintenance of lighting modules. An upper space made of a lightweight structure in square cross-section steel tubes protects the offices next to the industrial hall from overheating. The facades are clad in steel with three different finishes: the corrugated sheets on the roof are folded down over the facades, where they meet Corten and reflective stainless steel.
