“Motoremont” is facility for repair, servicing and sale of agricultural machinery and equipment. The very purpose and the meaning of this building’s activity are transposed into its function, design and appearance. Uninterrupted existence of this industry through times unites tradition and modernity and shows its necessity in the future of regional agriculture, technological advances and new achievements. The whole building is designed in contemporary architectural expression which is, in this case, achieved by use of both, traditional and contemporary principles. The most of the building’s exterior is a brick facade which symbolizes tradition and local craftsmanship. On the other side, the use of steel and glass in building’s appearance and structure allows creation of contemporary, large and spacious working areas. The front facade is slanted glass surface “interrupted” with noticeable entrance canopy. All of these architectural elements together invite clients and visitors, accenting the openness and quality of this facility.
