A closed but still transparent façade cladding made of LARGO-TWIST 2051 stainless steel mesh at the parking garage of the Barmherzige Brüder hospital in Regensburg, Germany.
The facade cladding of a parking garage is often much more than just the shell of a building. This is exactly what became apparent during the implementation of the project in Regensburg. The façade had to perform as a multifunctional element, fulfilling three essential characteristics: it should visually enhance the parking garage, provide natural ventilation and, in particular, it had to be a reliable anti-glare screen: neither reflections from the sun’s rays on the façade cladding nor light from inside the parking garage should blind the passing traffic.
Based on these clearly formulated requirements, a new mesh variant was developed from Haver & Boecker in close cooperation with the architect: LARGO-TWIST 2051.
