Execution Façade Malerwerkstätten Heinrich Schmid GmbH & Co. KG, Braunschweig
The primary aim of renovating and modernising the TRYP Hotel in Wolfsburg was to develop a new design concept for the façade. This had to communicate from the outside the high standards of quality that the hotel had set for itself. To cover the façade area, measuring 1800 square metres, the owner and operator chose a sophisticated solution with custom-produced flat facing bricks in anthracite grey and mottled brown, exuding a distinctive yet refined look. To lend the building a sense of animation, the flat facing bricks were laid using a random bonding pattern with irregular spacing and joints kept as thin as possible.
