Mobile Tourist Info Weimar

About the object

The cultural city of Weimar has charm and the numerous museums and cultural offerings make the fourth largest city in Thuringia a tourist attraction. The city is best known for the Bauhaus, founded by Walter Gropius. The art school’s concept of bringing together art and craft was something completely new at the time. With plain and simple forms, the Bauhaus makers revolutionised the architecture of the 20th century. The Bauhaus style still stands for bold and functional designs today.

Ruku Anhänger GmbH

“form follows function” – Baier vertical sliding windows complete Weimar information kiosk

The company Ruku-Anhängerbau from Rheinau-Freistett designed the cube-like information kiosk at the newly designed Stephane-Hessel-Platz in Weimar, Thuringia. The five-metre-high building in Bauhaus style was to be easily used at another location. Using proven and high-quality materials, Ruku built a trailer suitable for traffic made of glass-fibre reinforced plastic and aluminium window elements. A lowered counter area on the side ensures uncomplicated access, even for wheelchair users.

Telescopic sliding windows save space

For the realisation of the information kiosk, the Ruku company sought cooperation with an experienced window builder. Baier, a metal construction company from Baden, planned and constructed two telescopic vertical sliding windows and one horizontal sliding window for the counter and bar area of the modern building. Since the element height was limited by structural conditions, the vertical sliding windows were installed in telescopic design.

Horizontal and vertical sliding windows for “short distances”.

The space savings that sliding windows bring, especially in small rooms, are of great advantage. Since the opening window sash opens parallel to the wall, the entire interior space can be used. The counter staff as well as customers and tourists use the built-in sliding windows as a “pass-through” for services and for conveying information, for example for handing over information material, selling tickets or advising on the desired accommodation.

Baden companies work hand in hand – Individual custom-made sliding windows

“Constructive and pleasant” is how Thomas Beik, managing director of the company Ruku Anhänger GmbH, describes the cooperation with those responsible at Baier. The challenge of the project was the required mobility of the information centre and the narrow time window for the realisation of the object. “There must be no movement in the lifting technology during transport”, says project manager Johannes Kammler from Baier GmbH, “after all, the windows should also be immediately functional at a new location”. The vertical sliding windows were therefore equipped with a specially made cable guide with minimal tolerance. This special technology makes further transport locks during the change of location superfluous. The vertical sliding windows and their attachment points were prepared in such a way that the sliding window units could be completely inserted and bolted into the trailer structure.
