Galvanizing Delight

Sculptural steel extension

ARSP Architects in Dornbirn carefully renovated a compact residential building from 1929. A new, open and sculptural steel extension encourages outdoor living. The striking extension consists of a hot dip galvanized steel skeleton with galvanized access stairs and wooden timber delivery. The extension is wrapped with a semi invisible steel mesh that acts as both a screen and a fall protection system.
