The conversion of a historic brewery in Bavaria, Germany, into an office and events space posed a challenge: the need to replace five large stone window frames while retaining the original aesthetic of the façade. Using computer-aided design files specifying the geometry of the window frames, digital patterns were created to print polymer formwork elements that were successfully used to cast the window frame elements.
