Small is Beautiful
For Aloys F. Dornbracht GmbH & Co. KG, manufacturer of high quality fittings for bathrooms and kitchens, the answer on how to react flexibly to the future markets is growth in small, manageable teams. Largely independent production units should organise themselves. Dornbracht has developed this innovative organisational model with agiplan GmbH. Based on this, aib developed a master plan for the approximately 8 hectare plot of land on the site in Iserlohn that is to be used for the extension.
The Production Module
This module is the constructional focus on the essential. Each free single module forms a production unit. The module’s effective area is not the answer to the question: "How much space does a process need?", but to "What is the smallest space possible in which the processes can be organised?" Intelligent and innovative process and work organisations are supported. White Cube is the architectural answer to that structure. This is a construction module whose message is neutrality and which provides a variable and flexible platform for the activities.
