„Due to the horizontal and vertical overlap and proper ventilation of the facade is it a highly effective protection against wet weather conditions including driving rains. Therefore we decided to implement this unique system.“

„We just couldn‘t imagine to cover such an attractive wood house with plaster.The wish for a transparent weather cover generated the idea for the glass skin.“
