This innovative house is situated in Berlin, Germany.
The construction makes use of the synthetic HI-MACS, a assortment of versatile components produced by LG.
Villa Wiese in Berlin:
“Architect and builder Volker Wiese has realised his individual house layout dream with a Bauhaus type residence with exterior HI-MACS® cladding that secures privacy from the outdoors but encloses a delightful backyard with-in a multi-façade, 2 wing design and style. For the keen nature lover that Wiese is, using acrylic stone for the exterior wall cladding was an obvious choice as all the components utilised in this energy effective construction are sustainable. In selecting HI-MACS® for the facades, Wiese has become a pioneer in the use of this contemporary developing materials for the development of exterior walls.
It is frequently said that out of adversity comes authentic inspiration and good results. So it is with the new Wiese residence in Berlin-Grunewald. Previously Volker Wiese lived the excellent of a lot of architects with a spacious Bauhaus property with a 3,000 square metre backyard. However the nearby building authority issued permission for the construction of a 90 metre long, 5 story tall row of buildings across the street and Wiese’s carefully nurtured paradise developed by the gardening enthusiast over a lot of many years was destroyed by the shadow of the buildings and row of balconies facing his backyard.
Wiese settled on the web site for his new venture in the trendy but urban location of Berlin-Grunewald in which he demolished a run-down post war constructing in a quiet cul-de-sac and went about designing his new 2 wing property that secured his privacy from the outdoors with symmetrically arranged HI-MACS® panels, whilst forming an intimate and sheltered courtyard on the inside, with thrilling planes and offset facades mixed with big windows. From the green terraces and Japanese gardens of the first floor the see over the courtyard with a big pond at the centre and only a glass panel separating the swimming spot from the koi carp pond.
The total layout and building approach was fascinating.
As the connection among nature and living was also an important aspect in the architect’s choice of materials for structural elements, he chose solely ecologically sustainable large-quality merchandise such as HI-MACS®. The architectural organization Kaden Klingbeil implemented Volker Wiese’s style as a wood-frame development with sound wood ceilings. Nevertheless, they did not want the benefits of the timber development to be as well clear, so they opted for a ventilated rain screen facade. The façade panels were mounted by the façade construction company Kiebitzberg employing aluminium structures made by BMW Montagetechnik. The HI-MACS® FR aspects (in Alpine White), which is specifically developed for external use, were fixed onto the structures with KEIL inserts invisible from the outside. The mineral materials is composed of 70 % organic stone powder, 25 % large good quality acrylic resin, 5 % organic pigments, and is extremely dress in-resistant and sturdy.
Tom Klingbeil is fascinated with HI-MACS®. “The supporting, room-enclosing, insulating and moisture-regulating external wall demonstrates excellent thermal properties. For illustration, in blend with external cellulose insulation, this timber-frame development lowers the use of energy to just 70 % of the vitality employed in a reference object as per EnEV 2009.” The wind-proof and breathable external shell tends to make damp proofing entirely pointless. The interior formaldehyde-cost-free glued laminated OSB-4 panel, also serving as a cross-brace, is just a vapour barrier. The external timber panel is completed by a cement-bound fibre-reinforced plasterboard.
Its versatility has led to the HI-MACS® reliable surface material getting to be established as an ecologically sound high-quality product in the globe of architecture and layout. It can also be employed in the construction of façades and opens up new options to architects and façade building organizations in terms of style, functionality and aesthetics. Its organic residence of adapting to temperature fluctuations can make HI-MACS® the best material for 3-dimensionally shaped façade components this kind of as the embrasures of the Wiese residence. In regard to fire resistance, HI-MACS®-S728 in Alpine White obtained a fire rating of B-s1-d0 (as per EN-13501-one) in the SBI test (Single-Burning-Item), beating all other mineral-based mostly components. 4 other colors in the HI-MACS® façade range also accomplished excellent outcomes in regard to fire rating. In addition, twelve a lot more colors integrated in the HI-MACS® programme can be utilised in almost any appropriate regions due to their B1 rating in accordance to DIN 4102-one.
In his decision of material, Volker Wiese was largely impressed with the substantial good quality of the acrylic stone: “The delicate surface come to feel of HI-MACS® was exactly what I was looking for in terms of good quality. HI-MACS® allowed me to employ my thought of developing in a sustainable way.” Wiese also values the non-porous smooth finish of the reliable surface. “I assume that it will be straightforward to clean, sturdy and climate-evidence.” These expectations are backed up by licensed tests carried out on the HI-MACS® FR series developed for external use. The items beat all other mineral materials as effectively as sound surfaces in the ETA certification test in terms of UV resistance. Therefore, LG Hausys confidently offers a number of warranties for the façade colour range.”
