The first new building to form part of the expansion of the Airbus factory in Hamburg to house production facilities for the Airbus 380 is a steel structure with the main girders outside, spanning an unobstructed shop floor measuring 120 m x 350 m. The façades are divided into large areas of glazing and aluminium cladding with integrated ribbon glazing. Inside, three bar shaped building structures line each of the long sides.
