Final completion of Fritz-Lipman Institute, Jena

The latest Institute Building on Jena’s Science campus represents another Landmark of outstanding architectural design with its remarkable bright facade appearance. The suspended PTFE/glass mesh facade does allow a maximum natural lighting inwards whereas the view from the outside is reduced to a minimum, during daylight hours.  The high esthetic requirements defined by the Architects did force Temme Obermeier to develop a completely new facade framing system. This system provides a homogenous surface with minimized gaps between the frames. Integrated springs keep the tension of the fabric on a constant required level throughout the different temperature conditions of the year.
