Berlin’s new connotation with “Bauhaus”

Thinking of Bauhaus Berlin is automatically associated with Gropius. Now, Berlin has another association: The new building of the Bauhaus AG by Müller Reimann Architects. The new building is a warehouse construction with an extravagant façade and has the prominent address Kurfürstendamm 129a.

The three-dimensional façade cladding made of parametric ALUCOBOND® tray panels spans across the whole structure with a floor space of 22 000 m². It reflects the light and changes its colour through different light incidences according to weather and daytime. “The effect of the façade is generated with the combination and overlay of different elements: reflecting surfaces, advertising lines, winter garden and plants”, so the architects.

The “City Garden”, a winter garden in front of the sales area promotes the building centre like an oversized showcase. The long windows are used as huge advertising media and draw the attention to the deepness of the former railway lane. A drive-in area facilitates the purchase.

Limmat Tower

Dietikon’s new district, Limmatfeld, is located at the heart of dynamic Limmattal, between the station, city centre and the river Limmat. The 80-metre high Limmat Tower, soaring high above the whole Limmatfeld district, is the most distinctive feature on Rapidplatz square.

Raiffeisenbank

ALUCOBOND® Prefab invisible is a new façade construction system for ALUCOBOND® panels without visible fixings, these fixings can spoil the aesthetic of the façade. Specially developed carrier sections are structurally bonded with the bonding system ALUCOBOND® by tesa® to the rear of ALUCOBOND® panels.
