The new office building of Dresdner Solarwatt AG surprises with a special inner façadeWith the new office building of Solarwatt AG Dresden has yet another architectural highlight: three apparently “floating” meeting rooms in plasterboard lightweight construction had to be integrated into the inner façade of the atrium in such a way that they are seen as suspended bodies from inside as well as from outside.

They are a regular source of astonishment for customers and visitors. The projections which have a large oval form and are finished in a radiant dark yellow, can be seen at the Solarwatt location on Maria-Reich-Strasse, where solar modules have been developed and produced for more than 16 years.
