In Wenden, the southernmost town of the german region of Sauerland electro mechanical actuators for water management, the power plant sector and the oil and gas industry are manufactured.

The special cut of the new building of the Drehmo GmbH is owed the topographical situation in this region. The moving landscape caused the terracing of the landscape and produces irregularly shaped lot.

The homogeneous materiality of the attic, roof soffits, columns and parts of the wall covering, using lighter aluminum expanded metal panels, the corporeal of construction is emphasized. Constructively effective struts inclined tension between the individual levels or to ground, forming a kind of contemporary framework, it acts like a muscle, supporting and shaping at the same time.
