Characteristics
Conversion of a listed factory building into an outlet shopping centre

The factory is built entirely of pisé and is a listed historic building. The owner, Schaeffler, wishes to restore, enhance and repurpose it, and commissioned us to examine the feasibility of creating an outlet shopping centre.

The building fabric is left completely intact. The access gallery is redeveloped as a shopping mall and the workshops, housed in sheds, are made into retail units according to a “box within a box” concept, in order to preserve the initial volume of the building.
