The office building of Papyrus Software in Brunn am Gebirge is a unique example of architecture that reflects innovation and movement. Its distinctive copper-brown façade (made of Argeton) gives the building the appearance of a living organism. The pronounced profile structure of the tiles gives depth and liveliness to the building envelope depending on the lighting conditions.
To realize the facade, Venelli Kramer Architetti chose the Allface System F1.10 as a base fastening system. We statically assessed and designed the system and created a detailed installation plan. The entire project covers 1,200m2. During the design process, it became apparent that attaching the vertical terracotta elements required a special solution.
To achieve this, we extended the F1.10 base system with a horizontal layer of hat profiles to mount the tile clips. Additionally, there are special steel clips to prevent noise such as rattling or clattering in strong winds. Our custom brackets were used for the large wall distances. With the experience gained from the project, the F1.29 system was developed, which has since become part of Allface's standard portfolio. The entire system is adaptable to fix any vertical panel — even columns and U-shaped elements.
However, it's not just technical product solutions that support architects, clients, and executing companies. It's our employees' personal support that helps our partners move forward.
