Penny Market Rheinau

About the object

The Rewe Group has come up with a new concept for the Penny subsidiary. The logistics , product quality and shop design for the Penny stores were to be improved. The new look is being implemented bit by bit throughout Germany. The new building of the Penny shop in Freistett was also adapted to the new noble design. Parts of the white plaster façade were clad with untreated cedar wood. Large façade elements in plain grey characterise the modern, cube-like new building. A pleasant shopping experience in a modern ambience is offered to the Freistetters and customers from the surrounding area and from neighbouring France.

Mullion-transom façade as the company’s business card

Both from the outside and the inside, the cube-like building was to convey a feeling of modernity, transparency and openness to potential customers.

Large façade surfaces made of aluminium and glass were realised.

Baier supplied and installed the large-scale façade construction in post-and-beam design. The advantage: the individual elements could be prefabricated in the nearby factory in Renchen-Ulm and easily connected on site.

Despite the different areas of use by the restaurant, pharmacy and supermarket, the façade offers a uniform appearance of the entire building from the outside. The particularly narrow face width of the façade profiles enabled a filigree design with high stability. Due to the variable construction depth of the profiles, even high glass façades are possible without intermediate supports.

Transparency and protection from the sun with solar control glass

Glass façade elements create bright, light-flooded rooms. Special solar control glass was used to protect the building from excessive solar radiation. A special coating on the outer pane of the insulating glass used reflects part of the visible and invisible solar radiation. The enormously high light transmission of the solar control glass ensures plenty of daylight inside the building. At the same time, the total energy transmittance of the solar control glass prevents the building from heating up too much and ensures a pleasantly cool indoor climate.

Lift-and-slide door separates smoking area

Another highlight of this building project is the lift-and-slide door that separates the restaurant from the adjacent smoking area. By glazing the entire partition wall, the room remains visually as large as possible and yet separates the two rooms optimally from each other in terms of ventilation. In contrast to ordinary sliding elements, a lift-and-slide door offers a significantly better seal and thus, if desired and required, also better insulation. Another advantage is the large opening width: Since the sash weight is not suspended from the frame at the top, as is usually the case, but is supported at the bottom with the help of runners, significantly heavier and thus also larger sashes are possible, which hardly take up any space in the room, even when open, because they slide on next to the fixed sashes.
