Type of works: design and manufacture of SIEDLE entrance control systems.
The door stations at the entrance to the site are symmetrically arranged, fit precisely between two joins in the natural stone wall and have the same paintwork finish as the unit mounted at the gate and fence; at the entrances to the building, the units blend into the grid pattern of the facade and into the house colour scheme.
An entrance area designed to this degree of perfection is the result of careful planning.
It is based on two underlying conditions: first of all it requires a planner capable of defining his designs down to the last detail who is willing to address every conceivable available technical possibility.
Also essential is a communication system whose concept, design and manufacture offer the flexibility it takes to accommodate the design ideas and specifications of the architect.
Where these two essential factors coincide as successfully as they did in this property, which is home to a Berlin entrepreneurial family, what emerge are individual system applications whose design quality continues to surprise.
