Case Study: Konrad Zuse House

foxfire Konrad-Zuse-Haus Rostock 1

The Konrad Zuse House is the new home of the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Rostock in Germany. This beautiful building was designed by German architecture firm Assmann Beraten + Planen. The many ingenious features of this building reflect the ground-breaking research performed within.

Key to the design of the building is a large, covered central atrium. The architects specified EuroLam GG ISO louvre windows for the verticle glass facades which made up part of the atrium. These louvre windows provide ventilation during warm weather, while their aluminium and nylon composite frame and blade profiles provide thermal insulation during cold weather. GG ISO louvre windows have no horizontal panel profiles (glazing bars) which minimises the areas without glass. The EuroLam louvre window system is therefore particularly suitable for use in all-glass facades.

EuroLam GG ISO 24 BT 50 and 32 BT 60 louvre windows are available from Foxfire Louvres. For more information, visit Foxfire’s website.
