COLOR COATED STEEL
BALTIC STATION MARKET
GreenCoat PRO BT, Mountain Grey, RR23 / SS0036
CHOICE OF FAÇADE
The saw-tooth roof is specific due to its scale as well as the large surface needed to endure big storms, heavy rains and the weight of the snow that accumulates during the winter – all without extra maintenance. In addition, it was highly important for us that the material was produced in a sustainable way.
The form and the color of the sawtooth roof create a contrast to the light grey limestone walls. With the roof, we wanted to create a dual color solution with the wood-strip ceiling underneath and the darker steel on the roof.
Sustaining the original character of the market, while introducing modern and environmentally friendly building techniques was the goal. Therefore, sustainability has been the keyword in every aspect of this project.
INSPIRATION TO THE FAÇADE
One source of inspiration came from a saw blade – the rhythm of the saw-teeth. We united the original warehouses with a roof-landscape that forms a row of saw-teeth and also creates the gable roof covering the limestone walls as well as the outside area of the market.
