I have been researching how other factory buildings have had modern extensions and additions added to them as the building that I have chosen was built as a brewery, has had many factory uses over the years and is now currently a brewery again. I would like to add a possibly a more modern extension to it, so it was important to look at what other architects have produced.
This is an example of where an old factory building has been modernised with an extension. The Brouwersvliet Gallery in Antwerp was designed by Stramien Architects who have added a modern rusted steel and glass extension to the building. The rusted metal merges beautifully with the red brick and complements the brick very well. It almost looks as if it has always been there, yet looks modern and new at the same time. Like the building that I have chosen, the original construction is red brick.
