01 product description
The three-dimensional mould elements made of glass fibre-reinforced concrete make facades with ambitious geometric forms possible. Thanks to a newly developed manufacturing technology, fibreC 3D elements can be produced in fair-faced concrete quality on both sides, which means that Rieder will grant architects even more design freedom. As the mould elements can be combined with the fibreC facade panels, they represent an economical solution for one-of-a-kind facades.
Lontoonkatu 9, Helsinki
Lontoonkatu 9 in Helsinki is a residential building for 72 apartments, built by one of the largest private property developer in Finland - Oy Sato. The idea of Architect Kirsi Korhonen ist to produce refracted light for homes, penetrate the openings in the facade like tree leaves, by the sun's rays. All facade elements simultaneously take on the function of balcony railings and balustrades.
