Detailed characteristics

We are proud to participate in the renovation of historical building. One of those was a piece of jewellery – the former Oberpostdirektion (administrative building of the imperial postal service) in Dresden, built in 1876 in the style of the Italian Renaissance.  However it took on a new a perspective – since 2016 the old Post office has been transformed into the Residence at Postplatz. Designed by renowned architect Ingo Pott of Pott Architects Ltd. According to his designs, the old building was largely preserved with a new brick cladding to complete the new looks but also as a tendency not to disturb the local character of the city and keep the genuine spirit of a place.

Technical specifications

The ventilated facade suspended on an aluminum load-bearing structure from ceramic material imitating the appearance of brick clinker.
