Large sized anthracite facade panels and high-contrast golden perforated balcony claddings from Bruag are the two most notable exterior features of a pair of newly built multifamily houses in the Swiss city of Kilchberg, near Zurich.
‘Organic design according to natural patterns’ is the way architect Michèle Rota describes the idea behind the individually produced panels supplied by Bruag.
Enabling privacy and a comfortable balcony atmosphere were extra priorities for the experienced architect.
The free choice of shapes and colours and the personal interaction with Bruag’s technical team meant Michèle was satisfied the panels were the right choice for the project.
Michèle commented: “I was upset by the fact that inhabitants tended to add individual sight protections to transparent balconies, undermining the original idea of having a coherent building design.”
Bruag’s solution to this problem was for the panels to have an individual percentage of open space.
Bruag’s delicately-perforated facade elements instantly make a building eye-catching. Delicate perforation patterns for interior and exterior application, functional aesthetics, urban design fully according to your individual concept; simply wonderful.
The flexibility in design is nearly unlimited. You cannot only order panels according to your customised design idea, but also different panel sizes, designs or perforations running through several panels without interruption are not an issue.
