Saint-Gobain: A Small Jewel Made Of Glass

All around the rebuilt Frauenkirche, one of the most attractive squares in Europe is being given new splendour.

The “jewel at the Frauenkirche” is one of the most exciting of the newly-created quarters: historical and modern façades are in a dialogue, including the slender glass front “An der Frauenkirche 21” - completely glazed with glasses from the CLIMAplusSECURIT partners, Glaskontor Erfurt and KINON Porz.

In total, five houses form the Quartier III am Neumarkt, divided up into several façade sections. Five of these plots were designed based historical models, while for the others, contemporary designs were selected. That was also the case with the glass façade “An der Frauenkirche 21”: as a working unit, it belongs to the neighbouring “Zittelschen Haus”, which originally dates from 1733 and was reconstructed based in the baroque style, both façades together form an exciting symbiosis of historical and modern.
