Fully glazed eye-catcher

The roof slant copied from the slope of the hill makes the glass cube at the city fringes of St. Gallen look as if it had just elegantly grown out of the ground. Situated in the shadow of the old ash tree and a large awning, the building with a façade made entirely in wood and metal by Huber Fenster AG barely heats up at all. All corner panelling and floor transfers of metal were included in the project. Fully concealed hinges and rough-sawn oak were used on the inside. Many precise details, such as a mitred transition between plaster and windows turn, this glass palace into a true eye-catcher without becoming pushy.
