Three barrel vaults, covered entirely in glass, form the main design element and supply the exhibition rooms with daylight. The glass elements contain two prism systems. Sun protection prisms regulate the indoor atmosphere, preventing the rooms from heating up – even on hot days. Deflection prisms ensure evenly distributed, glare free illumination. The effect is light flooded interiors with a pleasant temperature, and perfect illu- mination of the exhibits from all sides.

  11. 11. PLANNING Heliotropic Diagram Siteco’s Traunreut site: latitude 47.9 º, longitude 12.6 º Planning. Top quality lighting solutions cannot be purchased “off the rack”. Every building and every room has different optical properties and different lighting require- ments – particularly in terms of natural light. This is why we develop an individu- al, customised Siteco daylight solution for each site. For planning purposes, we use results from theoretical calculations, as well as actual measurements. When calculating complex requirements – e.g. when the interior decoration elements and surface texture have to be taken into considera- tion – we utilise lighting simulations in addition to computer aided design. 28 29 Zenith Our guarantee.
