Richard Wagner Museum, Bayreuth (GER)

Since 1976, the former residential building of the famous German composer Richard Wagner is open to the public as one of three museum complexes. In July 2015, a transparent extension to the main building was completed in the center of the historic garden.

With the use of 285 m² of sun protection insulating glass, tempered safety glass and laminated safety glass the architects “Staab Architekten“ were able to combine the historical atmosphere of the museum complex with modern aesthetics without breaking the harmonious picture. All in all 41 pieces of glass with the measurement of 2,474 x 3,110 mm were used.
