MODERN ROOF FOR THE HISTORY MUSEUM
The House of Bavarian History is a modern museum complex in Regensburg. The roofscape blends in with the panorama of the surrounding historic city. Profiled sheets from Kalzip were used to design the unusually composed roof area.
ADAPTED TO THE CITYSCAPE
On the former so-called Donaumarkt, the façade with its gray, geometric surfaces stands out clearly from the surrounding buildings. Viewed from the other side of the river, the profile of the building blends in with its surroundings: The roof mimics Regensburg’s skyline and thus fills the former gap in the Donaumarkt without trumping the existing building in terms of height.
SIXTEEN ROOF AREAS
Not visible to the passer-by: The entire roof is made up of 16 different geometric surfaces that slope in different directions. Adapted to the different angles and building heights, the triangular and trapezoidal surfaces are inclined in different directions and thus form a three-dimensional mosaic.
The Kalzip 65/400 aluminum profile sheets with their AluPlusPatina natural aluminum mill-finish surface contribute to the uniform appearance of the gray-metallic outer shell. On a functional level, the profiles are aligned according to their angle of inclination in order to enable perfect rainwater drainage.
ENERGY-EFFICIENT RIGHT UP TO THE ROOF
According to the client’s specifications, the House of Bavarian History was to consume as few energy resources as possible. To ensure that as little energy as possible is lost through the outer shell, the decision was made to use the DuoPlus energy-saving roof system from Kalzip when planning the roof. Thanks to its high insulation performance, the system structure minimizes heat loss in winter and protects against solar heat gain in summer.
Considered with care. KALZIP.
