The German textile manufacturer Nya Nordiska recently inaugurated the new extension of the company building in the historical center of Dannenberg, a small city in Northern Germany. It was a challenge to the architects of the Berlin based practice Volker Staab Architekten to align this highly functional building to the scale of the old town which is especially characterised by rather small stud work houses.

“Six new structures, which take their cue from the storey height of the surrounding buildings, now blend with Nya Nordiska’s existing plant to form a fascinating ensemble of half-timbered and modern architecture, at the centre of which lies a grassy inner courtyard. With the apparently modest proportions of its elements and roof surfaces that rise and fall, reminding us of desks and lecterns, the design succeeds in harmoniously integrating the new building complex into the historic old town centre of Dannenberg. The cladding of reddish anodised aluminium sheathes the whole extension like pleated fabric and provides an exciting contrast with its surroundings.”
