Perforated sheet metal to the fore!
Perforated sheet metal can be used in any number of ways in architecture – starting with weight reduction for components through optimized acoustic properties to improved heat dissipation.

The new Otto Grimm Audi dealership at Bitterfeld-Wolfen near Leipzig, Germany, is one
of the latest to be constructed to Audi’s innovative multi-storey ‘terminal’ corporate
architecture specification, developed by the company for its worldwide dealer network.
Designed by Munich based architects Allmann, Sattler, Wappner Architekten GmbH,
the ‘terminal’ design was originally motivated by the need for increased space to
accommodate a growing range of cars, while meeting the spatial and functional needs
of the automotive trade and operating a busy dealership.
