SSM Architekten - Kulturfabrik Kofmehl

I love the mute facade of SSM Architekten's Kofmehl building. The Kulturfabrik Kofmehl is an event and community space for local youth in Solothurn, Switzerland. Clad in steel, each facade hosts one or two distinct design elements - a large picture window on one facade, a metal stair on another. The bottom steel panels on the front facade open up to reveal a set of glass doors and windows. So beautiful in its minimalism.
