Project of the month
Three cable railway stations en route to “cloud grove”
The facades of the cable railway stations named “Gardens of the world“ and “Kienbergpark“ are on the two long sides glazed with Rodeca tongue and groove panels type PC 2550-10 in opal colour.
The milky white colour tone arranges for a pleasant light diffusion inside the half-open building. It integrates smoothly into the closer environment without being obtrusive. For both cable railway station approx. 1100m² of panels have been installed and afterwards decorated with foil lettering.
Railway concept is a direct connection by monocable from the start in Berlin Hellersdorf at Kienbergpark station and westwards from the IGA area arranged station gardens of the world in Berlin Marzahn. The cable railway is divided into two sections and has an interstation at Kienbergplateau.
The station buildings have been developed from a superior concept which summarizes all three stations thematically. The constructions of the cable railway shall integrate into the environmental context. From this assumption the draft of a green wave which grows out of the ground and which thanks to the roof greening flows over the station building and makes it this way to a part of the landscape.
Facade with fascinating plastic
The light building elements from Rodeca glaze a warehouse in Oberhausen. In Oberhausen an extension to an existing warehouse and logistics building for the Gude GmbH was created. Light-transmissive and coloured facade panels from Rodeca GmbH give the hall a special appearance both inside and outside. Above all, the appearance of the material contributes to a strong architectural appeal of the building.
The polycarbonate panels were customized in their colour scheme. With their multi-layered structure, they also take over the function of thermal insulation. This has a positive effect on the energy balance of the building. With regard to the use of the hall, the panels have other useful characteristics: Among other things, they protect the sensitive storage goods against UV radiation. The Gude GmbH with headquarter in Rheine is a supplier of disposable food packaging and hygiene products made of paper, plastic, aluminum and groundwood. From three locations in Germany, the wholesaler supplies and services customers like bakery, butcher, catering, industrial and office sectors. In Oberhausen, an existing warehouse and logistics centre has now been extended by a goods depot. With this extension Gude increases its existing capacities and creates the conditions for future growth.
The targeted use of colored panels gives each building a distinctive character.
Product version BiColor is exclusively available for our 40 mm panel with four layers. BiColor means the inner layer of a panel is differently coloured than the three outer layers. Through that special colouring colour appears three-dimensional, lighting effects vary depending on day light and perspective.
