A milled 3D timberstrcuture at a thickness of apx 40cm
made by M/S WIEHAG of
Altheim, Austria is used to transfer the
load of the metal envelope built-up
into the main structure.
The wooden core received a vapour barrier prior to installing
a 200mm spacer
structure made of 2mm steel sheet.
This secondary structure is providing the
final shape of the envelope.
The void within the spacer structure is completely filled with
An extensive layer made of steel sheet is fixed to the aforesaid
structure. The contour
of the sheets is adapted to fit the 3D shape
of the envelope at any given location.
Two layers of waterproofing membrane ensure watertightness of
the total building.
Last but not least, stainless steel shingles (apx 3680 individual
pieces) form the
external finish. Each of them is unique,
in shape, accurate folding process and positioning.
