Residential building, Zurich
90 degree rotation
Modern residential buildings are realised in a linear design. Exposed concrete is an integral part of modern architecture. Exposed concrete walls are created with an appealing surface quality and the panel structure of the exposed concrete creates a subtle and attractive wall pattern.
When creating an exclusive detached house, our example shows how planning can change completely ad hoc. One of the walls had not been made with the look of high-quality exposed concrete with transverse formwork panels - it was necessary to take corrective action: The raised, vertical concrete projection and the unsightly surface image needed to be replaced with a concrete finish that matched the property. The PSS concrete cosmetics specialists revised the entire surface of the wall panel layer by layer. The result: The PSS concrete cosmetics specialists replicated the fine panel structure, the colour scheme and the transverse concrete projections are now rotated by 90 degrees. The onlooker cannot discern any difference to the exposed concrete of the other house.
