Directly at the freeway exit to Herford, a new BORA location was situated as a flagship store with sufficient space for exhibition, training, restaurant and events.

The remarkable metal façade – a combination of galvanized and differently perforated steel parts with colored glass elements – envelops the cantilevered, almost floating building and gives it a rhythmic and extraordinary appearance. The steel structure and the metallic exterior are in keeping with the high-tech line of the BORA brand.

The weather-protected parking lot is located under the structure of the approx. 100-meter-long wing with a generous cantilever.
