Architectural mesh – CREATIVEWEAVE

  • Mesh façade signalizes eventful company history

    In the course of remodeling an old production hall, the architects at Baurconsult chose Sambesi metallic mesh from GKD for the entire building façade. The company history is to be presented in a dedicated museum here to mark the 100th anniversary of ZF Friedrichshafen AG, Schweinfurt, Germany. The industrial source material underlines the character of the exhibition. At the same time, the mesh serves as semi-transparent façade cladding and stable perimeter fencing for the works premises.

    The façade of Hotel Parador de Alcalá de Henares, located in the former 17th century Dominican monastery of Santo Tomás de Aquino, has been equipped with a transparent solar protection system.

  • Wall cladding made of bronze metal fabric at the Empire Riverside Hotel

    This acoustically effective wall cladding made of Mandarin bronze metal fabric creates a relaxing atmosphere in the bar of the Empire Riverside Hotel in Hamburg.

  • Solar protection façade made of flexible mesh

    The flexible Escale design mesh delivers solar protection on the façade of the Grand Theatre des Cordeliers. The three-dimensional membrane made of anodized spiral mesh with sun protection properties envelopes the façade without hiding it. During daylight hours, the mesh façade reflects the majority of the solar energy striking the building and thereby significantly reduces the solar input. At night, the semi-transparent solar protection façade lends the building depth and elegance.
