The BRUNNER family business based in Eggenfelden, Germany has been designing and manufacturing high-quality stoves and fireplaces since 1946. Following the decision to move into the production of heating and boiler systems in 2010, space became increasingly tight, which led to the construction of a brand new facility. This was designed by local architect Prof. Markus Frank and comprises two modern buildings, which display innovative and distinctive craftsmanship both inside and out. The extraordinary façade ties in well with the future-oriented nature of the BRUNNER business.
A new office building with attractive workspace and a new 4,500 m2 heating technology building were designed. It accommodates training rooms for employees and customers, engineering and testing laboratories and a warehouse and shipping section. The key role of wood in fuelling BRUNNER products is reflected in the natural design and feel of both buildings, clad in Rockpanel boards. Visitors to the buildings are also surrounded by wood. The sense of space is incredible – over nine meter high rooms, impressive vaulted ceilings and large concrete areas combined with natural warm materials, such as rammed earth and solid wood, leave a lasting impression on the visitor.
