Double frame in steel that has the same dimensions as the former wall. As you pass the 37 meter long 'wall' the two layers make for an optical play. 

The factory used to have an old brick wall that since long was the boundary of the former Chocolate Factory Bensdorp. In order to keep the recently restored building behind it well perceivable I made a transparant wall made of welded steel anthracite grey powder coated.
