The customer wishes uniform roof and façade cladding made of corten steel cassettes. The joint pattern must be non-uniform. Location, orientation, and architecture of the building are unusual. Planning was performed by the architectural firm biagio lepori, Bellinzona.
Trough-shaped vertical support rails carry the water and allow corten steel cassettes of a wide variety of sizes and shapes to be installed and aligned individually. Corner, terminal, and special elements are made to size on site.
The following Ecolite products were used:
KA system: Aluminium U brackets, painted support profiles and U support profiles, sliding mounts for various joint widths, suspension bolts and rivets made of V4A stainless steel.
