Liebel / Architekten BDA’s unique home project is perforated metal front panels as a functional and aesthetic element of the building.
The architectural bureau Liebel / Architekten BDA presented a project of an unusual house with an open ground floor and upper level, the decoration of which used perforated facade panels made of metal. The building envelope provides a smooth transition from internal private space to the outside world.
Panels give the building an ultra-modern industrial look and at the same time increase the privacy of the interior. Let’s consider how architects managed to achieve the harmony of the metal structure with the natural environment.
perforated metal facade – functionality of perforated facade panels
The perforated metal construction provides a sufficiently high-quality inspection of the surrounding areas from the panoramic windows of the building, but at the same time it closes them from external views with sufficient quality. This is a kind of screen that can be viewed only from one side.
Due to the opening structures, the privacy of the internal space can be regulated – open, providing a clean panoramic view or cover for a more private, intimate environment. The opening facade also makes it possible to always ensure maximum fresh air through a panoramic window.
Perforated metal front panels let in enough light for high-quality insolation, but at the same time they cover panoramic windows from direct sunlight – the room warms up less on hot days. The perforated surface creates a pattern on the house – the building looks unusual and stylish. At the same time, it acts as an accent point in the design of the entire site.
perforated facade panels – uniqueness of design of front panels
On the front side of the house, perforated metal front panels are placed several meters. This made it possible to create the effect of introducing part of the local area to the living space. So, the open terrace on the ground floor, although it is in the fresh air, is still as if attached to the inside of the house.
A tree has been planted right here, the top of which is hiding behind metalwork – it seems that the tree also becomes part of the housing. This ensures a smooth transition from housing to garden, courtyard with a pool.
Architects also achieved a smooth transition from the natural environment to the urbanization of the building. Harmoniously combining natural wood, glass, concrete and metal, they managed to achieve a pleasant combination of the industrial appearance of the object and the wildlife around it. Natural materials are also mainly used in interior decoration. In order for the building to turn into a solid “box”, the first floor is completely open. The effect of overhanging the metal structure is created – going beyond the perimeter of the foundation, it is as if suspended in the air.
Thus, perforated metal facade panels have become a functional and aesthetic element of the house from Liebel / Architekten BDA. They contrasted the building among the local traditional buildings. Despite the fact that the house looks quite urbanized and unusual, it harmoniously fits into the natural environment due to the simplicity of forms, modern strictly design and the use of natural materials along with metal.
