zgoll: showroom in Korschenbroich, Germany
A 19th century farmstead located in the lower Rhein Valley close to Düsseldorf is now the seat of zgoll: GmbH. Two existing buildings were replaced by new ones. The former barn became a showroom for current conference technology equipment. Other areas serve as offices, workshops and warehouses.
JSWD’s material concept is based on the existing buildings. The uniform, flat-format bricks used on the new building facade and the minimal roof covering demonstrate a deliberate detail reduction. The scaly arrangement of the bricks reinterprets the clapboard formwork.
