Historical preservation

Most of the buildings in which we will find ourselves living and working over the coming decades were built some time ago. They are valuable structures and in some cases are even protected due to their historical worth. Preserving them and keeping their energy standards aligned with a modern age will be one of the biggest architectural challenges of the future. ORIGINAL MELDORFER® products offer a vast number of solutions for ensuring that historical façades stay looking great, as they were originally intended.

PRESERVING HISTORICAL VALUE

Attention to detail

Preserving historical value

Original Meldorfer® products open up a whole host of possibilities for property developers, architects, urban planners and preservationists. They make it possible to preserve the image of whole landscapes without the need to compromise on the original structural features, and they can help reshape individual façades in an authentic, effective style. Even features created using historical brick that is no longer in production can be reconstructed faithfully using our flat facing bricks.

Original Meldorfer® products are also an exceptionally versatile choice for preservation projects – whether they involve homes, residential areas, industrial buildings or historical monuments. They create sophisticated solutions designed with every single detail in mind, and can be used to create faithfully reproduced exposed brick surfaces without the need for disruptions in the bonding or field demarcation joints. Corner flat facing bricks give the appearance of solid stone at corners and edges – and even curves can be produced with consistently excellent results.

WMF factory outlet
The WMF (Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik) premises in the southern German town of Geislingen an der Steige is the perfect blend of old and new. Surrounded by brick production buildings dating from the later part of the 19th century, this former fish market is now home to the WMF factory outlet. To reinforce the link between the factory outlet and the area’s roots in production, the hall façade was given a fitting brick look using Original Meldorfer® products.
