Steel forging factory
Neue Hammerhalle is the primary building of a steel factory in North Germany, owned and operated by Stahlwerk Augustfehn GmbH. Finkernagel Ross were invited to overhaul its main production plant and forge. We created a 2100-sqm new production facility, replacing the dilapidating 1900 building that housed the forging hammer that lends the building its name. Behind our approach to Neue Hammerhalle was a deep engagement with vernacular of the area as a whole and the old factory building it replaced, namely the traditional North German red brick of the building’s base on top of which cubes of industrial glass are placed. This semi-translucent glass enclosure gently reveals the buildings main structural frame and provides a hint at the glowing theatre of heavy industrial steel production that is the primary purpose of this building.
