Norderstedt School of Music

The newly built Norderstedt Music School near Hamburg is a project with a highly sophisticated design. The generously proportioned glass façade consists of over 30 insulating glass elements, each weighing 150kg, using laminated technology.

The designer's intention was a graphical striped pattern extending over the whole façade, the otherwise very strict structure made less formal by a never repeating variation of stripe width and gap.

Each façade element is therefore an individual part of the overall picture and a unique piece of work. The benefits of laser frosting are displayed to the full here.

It was possible to adjust the degree of frosting precisely and a laborious masking of the glass elements with film was not needed.

cericom was able to fully calculate the desired striped graphics as an overall pattern using its high performance software; the subsequent laser processing was automatic with 100% control over the quality.

The façade elements were processed one pair at a time on a cericom machine of the c-matrix type.

The façade has a congruent design on the interior and exterior. A total area of about 300 square meters was processed with the laser in this project.
