The architectural office of Dr. Krieger did more than just bring the original beauty to the surface. The former ladies’ tract was completely rebuilt on the old ground-plan but with modern architectural methods. The provisional buildings from the 60s have been replaced by a light-diffused new building component, the outer form of which retraces the proportions of the former “ladies’s bath”. The glass façade of the new building is a sharp contrast to the material of the old perforated brick façade. The wooden louvres in the cavities between the panes give life to the hull. The architects achieved this haptic quality of the façade through the insulated glass OKAWOOD from OKALUX. The filigrane wood screening of louvres of Meranti wood in the pane cavity serves as sun and glare protection and allows warm, tinted daylight into the room without impeding the view to the outside.
