Factories are not considered a beautiful place, and usually, we think of factories as a place with a lot of machine noise and black smoke and what not. But when it comes to the beauty of a factory then there are a lot of things which can be done. The beauty of a factory can include the environment both inside and outside, the design both exterior and interior, the cleanliness, the dress code, the balance between human and machine. All these things made a good and beautiful factory and based on these things here is the list of most beautiful factories in the world.
Volkswagen Factory, Germany
This factory of Volkswagen is completely covered with transparent glass instead of concrete walls. The factory is made such that every person can see all the working going on inside, this shows that the company believes in transparency. Even people can visit the factory and some executives also give a complete tour of the factory. It’s one of the most beautiful factories in the world.
GreenHouse Facility, Holand, USA
The main idea of making this factory is to bring a working environment and fit into natural habitat without disturbing the nature. This was achieved by making most of the factory through glass panels because of which most of the daylight comes in just like it would be in any park. The factory is full of greenery and working environment is very refreshing and close to nature. Even the hallway is also a street which connects to all the rooms in the factory and it makes it even more natural working place, rather than artificially designed by humans.
BMW Central Building Germany
BMW chose to go with the old concept rather than following the new trend of making factories as close to nature as much possible. Instead, this factory is made with completely new design and the corporate office, and the factory is made in the same building. This way everyone has a sense of unity while working. The corporate office is at the top levels, and the factory process goes in the lower levels. The design of the factory is made such that the employees at the can see what’s going on at the bottom due to the glass floors. Most of the floors in this factory are made of glass.
McLaren Technology Centre, UK
This facility is so big that is can incorporate nine Boeing 747 jumbo jets in it and it’s not the only thing that’s worth talking about it. This facility has both the business office and the factory facility although factory was incorporated later on and the facility was doubled in size for that. The facility is made along the edge of a lake, and it gives it a beautiful layout. The height of the building is kept small so that the view of people won’t get hampered and they can still see trees on the other side.
According to us, these are the best and the most beautiful factories to work in. Kindly comment below if you know of another beautiful factory that deserves a spot on this list.
