This is a packing and distribution building for Ricola Europe in Mulhouse-Brunstatt. When the Swiss decided against joining the EU economic area in a referendum held in 1992, it became necessary for Ricola to set up a sales company in the EU and to build a hall for Ricola Europe in neighbouring France. This hall was built in a few months in 1995. It is situated on the periphery of Mulhouse, on the west bank of the Rhine-Rhône Canal, facing Brunstatt. It is a simple building, 60 m long, 30 m wide an 8 m high. The roof projects outwards and slightly upwards for 8 m on each of the two long sides. It creates large, protected areas, those facing into the yard being used for loading and unloading the trucks, and those facing a small park for rest periods. Here, the roof is of a material which allows the light through, so that these areas are bathed in soft light. (text from website Ricola)
