Ofenwerkstatt Müller is a workshop with five workstations for the production of rammed earth furnaces. The structure of the workshop should be perceived as a simple, monolithic volume. The building, with a floor space of 228 square meters, is built in a timber-framed construction.

The building shell consists of fixed glazing and wood with a front façade of open masonry. This stands on a concrete base and, at certain points, has generous openings with defined views. On the flat roof of the workshop there is a solar plant with an area of 45 square meters and a 60-degree inclination.

The new workshop is positioned on the property in such a way that it forms a kind of inner courtyard situation in relation to the existing building. The aim is to create a restrained building, which, with the wood and open masonry, represents the sustainable and technical aspects of the oven workshop.
