Car park ZeissAG (stock company) in Oberkochen Germany

This new building was erected at the border of an in the southern part sloping about 6500 m² large property not far from the city ValasskeMezirici in the rural Beskyde-Mountains. The surface is surrounded by a forest in the southern part and to the east and west by a valley which finds its end in a dam. The strong contrast between facades of perforated Aluminum panels, produced by Dillinger Fabrik gelochter Bleche GmbH on one hand and the completely wooden interior on the other hand is very distinctive. The 3-dimensional pattern of the perforated aluminum panel facade is building the 2nd skin of the building and combines sunblind, windshield and security lock at one time and remembers the local tradition of lace weaving. The building is a typical wood-construction, in a modern way. The innovative composite method, combining steel and wood, embody a house of the 3rd millennium. The 380m² facade consists of bent 2mm anodized aluminum panels, perforated with long square holes. But it's not only an architectural accent. It proves its integrity into the nature by its highly intelligent control of heat pump heating with solar support for hot water as well as heating system, but also by its low energy method of construction with wood, glass and metal in different combination.
