Overview

The combined production and administration building for fibreglass manufacturer Fiberline stands as an identity-creating landmark on the motorway near Middelfart. Like a 300 metre long hill, the building grows out of the landscape and shoots back towards the sky. At the same time, Fibeline was created with a clear focus on creating the optimum production flow and good lighting conditions throughout the building. This has resulted in an award-winning building that combines aesthetics and function in an exemplary manner.

The architecture supports an optimal production flow

The building is designed to support an optimal production flow. The height of the space is defined by a high bearing for changing use. The warehouse is integrated into the architecture of the space as a dynamic and central installation within the building. Production-related functions are located on the ground floor and all administrative, research and market-related functions are located in a gallery, which forms the east-facing facade of the building.

"Fiberline is the result of a meeting between a committed client, us as architects and the landscape."

Light is life-giving and in Fiberline light has almost become the architecture. Steel structures are minimised and windows are fitted in Fiberline fibreglass, which ensures maximum light penetration.

Light slits stage the glass beams

The room's working light through the three large light slits creates a varied working space that also stages the many light-reflecting white glass strands that make up the majority of the production itself.
