Stainless steel mesh on façades and roofs: the Rathausgalerie in Innsbruck

Rathausgalerie Innsbruck

Solar protection and ceiling façades made of stainless steel mesh from GKD characterize the architecture of the modern administrative center: the major, high-profile project was realized by star architect Dominique Perrault in cooperation with the Reichert, Pranschke and Maluche firm of architects from Munich.

The solar protection façade:

Horizontally adjustable solar protection panels made of custom stainless steel mesh Omega 1508 have a special mesh density; views of the outside surroundings are unobstructed and daylight is directed into the building interior – while at the same time, required solar protection values are adhered to; semitransparent reflective surface for lights and colors.

The roof façade design:

Seamless, trapezoidal and curved cladding of the glass roof and the adjacent façade; efficient solar protection with unblocked view of the outside surroundings; fascinating visual effect and light refraction through the slightly offset weft wires of the Canisse metal fabric (custom-made product); iridescent moiré effect at the corners of the mesh structure when viewed from outside; precisely balanced and extremely strongly tensioned mesh panels that reliably withstand wind and snow loads.
