The concrete facade of the old staircase needed to be renovated and insulated. The architect took this as an opportunity to decorate the prominently placed and narrow, but high facade with an artwork depicting Saint Dominic, the namesake of the client, St. Dominikus Schools GmbH. The image of Saint Dominic on the mural is supplemented by his places of activity and the associated dates. The green surface of the Rockpanel Colours panels was milled to create the artistic design, revealing the natural board material, which is similar to that of Rockpanel Natural.
A facade material with many advantages
Rockpanel cladding has many advantages, including optimum fire resilience (Euroclass A2), easy installation and excellent protection against weather influences. Equipped in this way, the students and teachers of the Nikolaus-von-Weis-Gymnasium will enjoy the renovation for a long time.
Architect Christfried Rudolph likes to use Rockpanel cladding again and again in his projects because he appreciates the functional aspects of Rockpanel: “With this material, you don't need to treat the edges. In addition, installers benefit from the light weight of the boards. Rockpanel retains its beautiful appearance, and dealing with fire protection is easier.”
