Facade Design - Rodeca Translucent Building Elements
The facade of the upper part of the main building consists of 5-meter high polycarbonate panels made by Rodeca. During the day, the translucent facade appears light yet structural and becomes brightly illuminated at night. 430 m2 of the Rodeca LBE 2540-4 MC panels in opal were used. The frame system consists of aluminum profiles from the Rodeca Seris 42. They receive a special coating and coloration in light grey that makes the aluminum more resistant and durable against corrosions.
