The Hoogoven site is a place where engi­neer­ing works have been built among many exist­ing and new build­ings. The Fac­tory BMI build­ing has a prominent main form, sit­u­ated along the route to the entry of the Hoogoven site. The vol­ume and mate­ri­al­ of the build­ing are restrained, and have a sim­ple expres­sion in con­trast to the great vari­ety of forms of the sur­round­ings. From the dark brick vol­ume of the office, a plinth con­nects the steel fac­tory hall. The facade of this hall is only opened at select locations where entries are nec­es­sary, the fac­tory doors, and the sides next to the raised crane lanes, are translu­cent; through which day­light pen­e­trates far into the fac­tory itself. The inte­rior of the offices are light and detailed with wood to give a nat­ural tone.
