To give the manufacturing industry a chance to stay in the city and form a high-quality urban environment, it is necessary to invest in high-quality industrial architecture. The Ghent-based architecture office GAFPA designed a workshop for Lab15, a wood construction company that manufactures prefabricated wood panels and bio-ecological insulation materials used in passive and low-energy houses. The architecture lifts the shed to a new industrial typology with a distinct identity. Instead of a typical metal frame, the workshop receives high, wooden sloping beams on a concrete column structure. The overdimensioning of the eleven sections allows for flexibility. Since all elements are made of prefabricated materials, they can be reused later. Between the production hall and the office building, a covered outdoor area is created that not only functions as a loading and unloading zone, but also as a place where employees can meet for lunch, a party or a drink after a long workday.
