A necessity becomes a highlight
Underground car park with cladding made from perforated sheets
A public building cannot go without an underground car park. Especially not in the city centre of Munich. But a virtue can be made out of necessity: Cladding made from perforated sheets not only conceals unattractive and unsightly elements. It transforms the cladding into a distinctive design element.
A true revelation in terms of design
Federal President Johannes Rau wished for a "place of dialogue" during the laying of the foundation stone for Ohel Jakob, the main synagogue in Munich. His wish came true three years later. Over 15,000 people admired the cube-shaped Jewish church made of light travertine stone. However, the associated underground garage was also a source of amazement on the opening day. Andreas Wandel selected perforated sheeting as the panelling for the numerous cable ducts - a real revelation in design for the guests driving into the underground garage.
