For several generations the Ruescher family carpentry has been growing and its current building structure can no longer support an economic production process. With the progressive industrialization of the crafts, new technology has been integrated and it is no longer just hand and table machines that are in use. In earlier times empty stables and garages were used as workspaces, but with todays multifaceted requirements of a workstation, this is no longer possible. Parallel to strict regulations regarding fire safety, accident prevention and hygiene, the ever developing production processes need suitable space. The construction of the Ruescher carpentry in the small village of Schnepfau should fulfill all its requirements under one roof and function as a high quality, contemporary workplace that is adaptable for future generations. This does not only demand meticulous planning of the building itself, but also has to blend into the architectural language of the surrounding area. Besides for storage , production, administration and recreational rooms, the new construction will include an exhibition suite, which will display carefully chosen workpieces to the general public.
