Newbuild premises for a building contractor, Haslach in the Kinzig Valley

The simple elegance of the light-coloured brick building is evolved with the carefully defined proportions and effective combination of materials. The clear-cut design and organization of the outside space is balanced with specifically developed details. This project emphatically demonstrates the successful realization of combined sustainability and innovation in commercial construction.
With this project, the harter + kanzler firm of architects won the first prize in the “Office and Commercial Building” category of the Fritz-Höger award for brick architecture in 2011.
