First impressions count. That is why the design of a building’s facade is so important. For complex applications with custom decorative designs, thyssenkrupp Plastics is the go-to partner for eye-catching facades.

For customer Kohlmeyer Fassadenbau, the company helped create an over 300 m2 visual highlight for the outer skin of a boarding house in Bremen. In the middle of a technology park, the giant image of a bird nest grabs the attention of all who walk by. And what you see on the outside hints at what to expect when you go in. 51 fully furnished apartments designed to make long-stay guests feel cozy.

The experts from thyssenkrupp Plastics created the custom facade panels in close cooperation with supplier FunderMax. At FunderMax, the Max Exterior panels from the “Indian” color range were cut to size and individually numbered according to their position on the facade so that they were easy to install for the customer. Before the bird nest motif could be completed, preparations included the shipment of specimen panels and optimization of materials lists – all coordinated by thyssenkrupp Plastics to the full satisfaction of the customer.
