Product description

Product Category: fibreC Facade
Product: fibreC Facade 13 mm

Book pages made from fibreC
The glassfibre concrete facade at the Eurostars Book Hotel in Munich is part of a fabulous design idea. The architecture of the building is devoted to the most cultural object in history: the book. Each floor is dedicated to a literary genre; the corridors and guestrooms pay tribute to the great writings of world history and the façade is full of pages. The shaped facade elements from Rieder represent curved book pages that protect from direct sunlight.

In the design of cladding, there are hardly no limits for planners and architects with fibreC. The selection of ten different colours in each of three surface forms the basis. In line with current trends and developments, fibreC offers a range of additional procedures for the creation of individual building shells. With a speciallydeveloped method, it is possible, to make glassfibre reinforced concrete flow around corners, or produce formed elements. Extraordinary building envelopes such as the pages of the Eurostars Book Hotel are the result of this advanced handling wit concrete.

Product family


The development of concrete skin was inspired by Rieder‘s vision of a concrete cladding panel that is both stable and lightweight. The large-format panels are 13 mm thin and give architects plenty of scope in the design of individual facades, with regard to colour, structure and form. Glassfibre reinforced concrete is in-combustible and made of mineral-based raw materials, giving the panels their unique characteristics. The authentic appearance creates a vivid facade. Since concrete skin can be used for interior applications as well, it becomes possible to overcome traditional boundaries of space and to increase the element of flow inherent in the materials. Interior and exterior spaces are merged into one.
