St. Jakobshalle Basel (CH)

This event location has a capacity of about 13,000 people and may be converted for various occasions. The reconstruction was ment to make this place even more inviting and open. This is why the façade consists of the insulating glass TG-THERM®sun, which was manufactured from TG-PROTECT® DG and the heat-tested toughened safety glass TG-ESG®-H. Due to a special surface this insulating glass offers an increased sun protection. Thus this exquisite event location convinces not only by its versatile usage possibilities but also by a multifunctional façade design.
