Special construction for
a mansion on Lake Geneva
We were first consulted by the company Ganter Interior GmbH in June 2014, having been recommended to this international general contractor by the architect Juan Pablo Molyneux, for whom we had already worked in Moscow and the United States.
The building - constructed in the 1920s in the Palladian style - was to be renovated from the ground up and the utmost quality was a top priority. Being listed as a building of historic interest, tremendous care and sensitivity were required in developing aesthetically pleasing doors for the building combining heights of up to 3.80 m with state-of-the-art technology. We therefore developed a special transom for this project with an integrated, electrically powered insect screen. This is perfectly flush with the exclusive KORN bronze sill dispensing with the need for complex adjustments in the region of the lintel and the sandstone façade.
By providing very detailed samples on site we were able to convince the building’s owners of the unique quality of our products and were awarded the contract to manufacture a total of 94 window and door elements from the KORN-Lignum line and have them fitted by our team of installers by February 2016.
At the moment, two prototype windows are being manufactured on a scale of 1:1 to be installed into the façade at the end of August. Once the owners have given their approval, these will remain in place. At the same time, we are working hard on itemising all 94 elements, so as to plan the production process.
