Transparency as a counterpoint to a wavy facade (sound insulation included)

The facade is clad in a total of 4,500 waves, while 1,250 glass elements provided by Solarlux adorning the Rhine-facing side of the building, providing protection against noise, wind and weather. The SL 25 XXL slide-and-turn systems can easily be opened and parked to one side as an inconspicuous bundle of glass, thus preserving the open-air character of the balconies even during spring and autumn – and they also act as a thermal buffer area. The approx. 3 mm vent ensures that they also provide constant ventilation when closed – while still maintaining high impermeability to driving rain.
