A very high priority was the demand for a coherent and straightforward architecture. The white planum facade with a “0” joint, designed with meticulousness, plays a very important role here. It gives the administration building and also the production hall an unmistakable identity. A particular challenge was to reproduce the curves of the administration building both horizontally and vertically with the Planum facade, which could only be achieved with an individual detailed solution. In conjunction with the processing company Kern and DOMICO, it was possible to develop a special construction here that represents an outstanding visual appearance.

In spring 2019, the groundbreaking ceremony for the new administration and production building of Siegfried Hofmann GmbH took place in the new industrial park of Lichtenfels (D). The family-owned company moved into the buildings on schedule at the beginning of 2021. The fact that the new address bears the name of the company founder Siegfried Hofmann is an appreciative gesture on the part of the town.

The cooperation between the two family-owned companies Hofmann and DOMICO, professionals for metal roofing and facades, has already proven its worth in the past. In various construction projects of the company Hofmann were already successfully used the element roofs and the planum facade of DOMICO, therefore Hofmann decided also currently for the proven quality products from Austria. “Architectural design, functionality, technical innovation and sustainability are important cornerstones for our company. Here we have a reliable partner in DOMICO, with whom we have been working for 10 years now,” says Managing Director Stefan Hofmann, who has headed the family business since 2018.
For this project, Hofmann set very high standards for a coherent and straightforward architecture that would give the new building complex an unmistakable identity. A particular challenge was not only to perfectly reproduce the curves of the administration building with the façade, but to set the scene for them.
