Geistlich area – residential development 24 mila baci

Object: Geistlich Area – residential development 24 mila baci, am Rietpark, Brandstrasse 21, Schlieren
Architects: Steib Gmür Geschwentner Kyburz Partner AG, Zürich
Façade construction: Diethelm Fassadenbau AG, Hermetschwil
Client: Helvetia Versicherungen, Zürich
Completion: 2020

BWB finish: Etching – with matte effect E6
BWB procedure: Sanodal® BWB Argentan 2 (former Argentan 7), Sandalor® Blue C64-2 or S150-1

The façade is a rich colour play with Argentan and Sandalor® blue from BWB surface technology. Facing the street, the silvery balconies contrast strongly with the dark blue façade. In the inner courtyard, the light gold tone is used extensively. The warm façade of the courtyard awakens friendly with the first rays of sunlight.

BWB surface technology anodised more than 7,000 m2 of aluminium sheets over several months for this project. The aluminium sheets were assembled and anodized in a multiple-shift operation on the fully automated 7.5-metre assembly line. In a series of immersion processes, the sheets were etched, anodised, coloured, then sealed.
