Washington Mutual Art Museum Project

The vertical arrangement emphasizes the character of the building: the slender and aspiring towers of the Washington Mutual, which are for the most part covered with glass, are extremely prominent. By contrast, the light TERRART® plates which are used to accentuate and in their entirety form almost the „backbone“ of the tower construction, are attached …

German Embassy Bern

The embassy building has been extended to include a new office wing, which is directly connected to the existing building. By emphasising simplicity and unobtrusiveness over the traditional style of the old building, the extension is architecturally restrained, which, in turn, lends it its own signifi cance. The sole decorative element is the terracotta façade, whose delicate details such as rounded …

Roadwork Company NRW, Bochum

The design above the entrance area, with baguette bars, constitutes loving attention to detail in the façade of Landesbetrieb Straßenbau NRW/Bochum, made up of TERRART®-LARGE units. The resultant grille casts a corresponding shadow that moves across the internal façade with the changing incidence of light.
