An extension to the headquarters of Luxembourg building engineering firm Sanichaufer, the project has a panelled facade featuring gradients of the colour grey and is a take on traditional mansard roofs typical to the area.  The grey colour scheme continues inside the space, with striped shades of grey on the walls.  The building will act as a showroom displaying modern building technologies.

Rooftop Office ” Dudelange is the extension of the company headquarters of Sanichaufer. Sanichaufer is one of the biggest Luxemburg-based firms in building services engineering, with over 50 years of experience.

Sanichaufer’s main fields of activity are heating, air-conditioning and central control systems. For this reason, the “rof-top office” is designed as a showroom displaying the most modern building technologies.

The construction laws demand the adaptation of the roof type of the adjacent building on a sixth of the façade width. However, the client wanted a cubic extension with a flat roof. The design combines those two opposites – the “mansard-object” as required by the laws – and the “roof-top office” as demanded by the client.

Alternation with Color gradients.

The combination of the different forms takes place with the help of grayscale gradients. The form follows the shades and vice versa. A subtle game. It alternates the opposite forms of the “Mansard object” and the “roof-top office”, as well as the different degree of the shades that seem to break out of the façade at the joints of the different parts.
