The local authority had devised a plan to erect a multipurpose building next to the latter, with a youth club, a concert hall, rehearsal room for the brass band, rooms for the art school, a reception room and so on – another example of a combination of scattered activities.

The manner in which ONO architecture developed the idea offers further surprises. The programme is stacked in a compact, tower-like monolith  that, together with the brewery’s gleaming fermentation tanks, defines the ‘skyline’ of the municipality.
