Brixen, Italy - 05.26.2017 - Durst, the manufacturer of advanced digital production technologies, is revamping Brixen’s southern industrial zone. With the ground-breaking ceremony on May 26th, construction is underway on a customer and innovation center, which will be the company’s flagship, and symbol of its international orientation. The new building will also house the Durst Group’s central team of directors. The new head office is designed to not only provide functional and effective accommodation for the company, but it must also respectfully relate to the existing building, designed by architect Othmar Barth and built in 1963. Commissioned architects Patrik Pedò and Juri Pobitzer, from Monovolume, followed Barth’s original concept and created a flat, floating “wing” with a 6-story tower that will become a landmark in the Brixen area, with its height of 35 meters. The connecting construction, between the existing and new buildings, is an organically shaped “pixel façade” made from pre-fabricated lightweight concrete elements. This special construction, featuring fenestration patterns, will give the overall building its identifying characteristic, and highly recognizable look. The new building fits in with the existing structure like an all-encompassing parenthesis, allowing the construction work to be carried out as smoothly as possible without Durst’s operational processes being interrupted. The overall developed area spans 21,388 m2 plus 2,800 m2 of green space. 5,000 m3 of concrete, 430,000 kg of steel and 2,600 m2 of glass surfaces will be installed. Access for employees and customers is being reorganized, and is now achieved directly from the existing traffic circle, for increased convenience and safety.

 

“Durst is today a world-leading manufacturer of digital production technologies, and the company’s innovative strength is recognized in many industries, on every continent”, says Christoph Gamper, CEO of the Durst Group. “Durst is also a family-run company, now managed by the 3rd generation, and every generation has made its own mark on Durst. The group’s evolution from purely replicating image data on various media to becoming a supplier of comprehensive solutions including image and data capture, printing and surface decoration, workflow software, ink systems and fluids, as well as services, will be the hallmark of the next decade. This evolution requires space, freedom and creative areas which we are now creating with the innovation and customer center in Brixen.”
