In Metz, France, a historic city known for its culture, green landscapes, and architecture, a shimmering rectangular-shaped building rises from a sloping landscape. The building designed by KL Architects is known as the Chamber of Crafts. The textile skin made of GKD Lago stainless steel mesh plays a central role in the building’s eligibility for sustainable recognition according to specifications from the French low-energy building label, Batiment Basse Consommation (BBC).
Until now, secure shutter solutions in shopping malls, underground garages or kiosks only rarely impressed through their appealing aesthetics. But now, the new roller door and shutter system made of stainless steel mesh from GKD is setting new standards for both indoor and outdoor applications. With its transparency and the ability to use light to create a unique appearance, both typical properties of metal mesh, it unites an exceptional appearance with maximum functionality. Measuring up to eight meters wide and five meters high, the roll-up shutter systems offer options in the architectural design of attractive shutters for shop doors, counters or entrances that have been unimaginable until now.
