Steiermärkische Sparkasse, Graz, Austria

The Project
Austrian architects Szyszkowitz and Kowalski were tasked with designing a new innovative façade for the Steiermärkische Sparkasse Bank in Graz. The decision was taken to create and install an additional façade resembling the appearance of fish scales.

The intention was to create an airy space within the façade of the building, which was constructed and installed by Bomin Solar Herstellung und Vertrieb solartechnischer Anlagen GmbH, of Lörrach Germany.

Using Pilkington Activ™ self-cleaning glass, it was possible to create a brilliant optical view of the new façade and to minimize cleaning costs.

A total area of 2,300 m² was glazed with Pilkington Activ™. The glass was heat strengthened and laminated together with a pyrolytic and printed back pane by Bischoff Glastechnik in Bretten, Germany.
