Children’s Centre Dresden

About the object

After several years of renovation and new construction, a functional new building was erected on the site with historic buildings. The Hößelbarth architectural office planned a distinctive façade with integrated sun protection. The planners opted for the modern building material glass. For this object, the glass panes of the sliding shutters were executed in different colours and a striped pattern.

Facade design with sliding glass shutters

As an elegant and functional detail, the sliding shutters in various shades of green set a fresh accent. Baier, an experienced sun protection expert in sliding shutters, had the necessary know-how and planned and constructed the sliding glass shutters for the children’s centre. Whether safety glass, heat insulation glass, clear or matt or printed – everything is possible. The modern and robust building material is versatile and therefore belongs to the basic elements of modern architecture.

The glass is usually fitted with an aluminium profile at the top and glued or clamped in place. In addition, the glass pane is provided with 2 drill holes and a special holding mechanism. This additional mechanical securing of the glass pane provides the necessary safety.

Elegant detail on the façade – sliding glass shutters

In this project, the sliding shutters are not only necessary sun protection but also play an important role in the architecture and façade design of the children’s centre. The colour design of the elements, which can be positioned flexibly, in combination with the fixed glazing creates ever new combinations and thus changing façade images.

Baier’s inventiveness and experience were also in demand, as the development of a special mounting and support profile was necessary to implement the installation of the sliding glass elements and the fixed glazing. The sun protection elements are operated electrically.
