Address : rue leon joulin
Contact person : Frédéric PINGLOT
- France

Architect : Rowan

Other planning committee : Photographer - Andrea

Project details :
  • Aluminium wood and Dolomiti Stone together to achieve great energetic performances and respect the surrounding
  • Objective light: very big glazing walls up to 34 meters to allow the maximum transparency and sight of the Alta Badia
  • Very high altitude (over 2000meters)
  • Wind load: very high wind load resistance needed (normally 0,5 kN/m2 in this project 2,0 kN/m2)
  • Huge temperature inversion: from -25° in winter up to 70° in summer on the façade
  • Complicated logistics for installation (an helicopter was used to transport the glasses at the construction site)

window systems


As an attractive complement for curtain walls the integration sash WICLINE 90SG provides efficient ventilation, if requested also fully automated. This all-glass window gives full options as a projecting top-hung sash or as a parallel outward opening sash and can be integrated flush with the glass pane level in WICTEC 50SG structural glazing curtain walling or in stick systems with exterior pressure profiles. For an optimum thermal insulation WICLINE 90SG can be equipped with double or triple glazing. Using standard glass without glass step leads to an economy of cost and improved safety. Technical performance: Profile technology: All-glass sash with slim profile design for maximum transparency and finelined window structures. Construction depth 189 mm, interior width 55 mm ETA granted (European Technical Approval) Infill thickness up to 62 mm For double or triplex glass Technology without step glazing, leading to economy and simpler assembly Complete fittings from WICONA for manual or motor operation Thermal insulation: Uf value until 1.1 W/(m²K) Italian sash application: Sash weight until 180 kg Sash formats (w x h): until 1500 mm x 2500 mm or until 2000 mm x 1700 mm Parallel outward sash application: Sash weight until 200 kg Sash formats (w x h): until 1500 mm x 3000 mm or until 2000 mm x 1500 mm
