Details

Walkways Protected by Membrane Facade

The concept was to create a membrane facade to this snail shape multi storey building protecting the walkways, office areas and shops. The architect’s intention was to provide a highly transparent facade with a minimised structure to offer an uninterrupted view from the gangways to the outside.The client’s needs were achieved by a geometry allowing a maximum span of ETFE film and using the strongest ETFE film available on the market. Natural UV-light is provided to the inside and at the same time minimises the maintenance costs due to the anti-adhesive properties of the ETFE film. The achievement was to build the first single layered ETFE facade in the world.
