This House, presents his visionary pitched roof, such as a roof sculpture made of slate. In Switzerland, with a wide view to the Lake of Constance, the single-family house of construction professionals was created. The architects of Quarella, Prof. arch. BSA SIA designed the building, which stands out from the crowd in architecture and choice of material from St. Gallen. Defining feature of the compact building is the roof design of the not inhabited attic with two skulpturhaft shaped Dormer Windows and an innovative, yes almost provocative interpretation of the classical theme of hipped roof.
Hip roof interpretation: The hipped roof has three different roof pitches. 70, the Eastern roof is steep, the South and North roof surfaces have a favourable for solar energy roof slope of 44. erly. The West roof has a lower roof slope with 39. The first line sloping from East to West has also resulted in, that at the given roof geometry an almost not noticeable at first glance fifth roof surface. She is inclined as the sloping first to 11 degrees and made of stainless steel. All steep sloped roofs covered with a rectangular double coverage from 40/25 cm large slates of Rathscheck slate. Also different ridge slopes and from different turbines slate cover around the French burrs of Switzerland the so-called arise from the different roof pitches.
So is bound to the flatter ridges with three expiring, specially to stones, the rectangular double cover along the steep ridges usually with two. Extreme heat protection of the construction professional: for reference, the client realized his own house with very high standards of insulation. The entire building solid made of concrete and bricks is pressure-resistant foam 10 cm. The basement walls are two-layered with 18 cm perimeter insulation from XPS, the walls (18 cm + 8 cm) with pressure-resistant mineral wool insulation. The entire facade construction is suspended on special low-heat bridge screws without the usual substructures. The attic of the uninhabited and non-heated attic has insulation 12 cm high PU attic insulation and the roof angles above the rafters two-layer insulated (5 cm + 5 cm). So the effect of a dam in total comparable with an approximately 30 cm thick mineral wool layer. Conclusion: Modern monolithic architecture, innovative interpretation of classic roof and highest thermal insulation make an interesting reference for the future-oriented construction craft from this House. The classic natural slate roof and wall materials is of course. The portal offers an unprecedented structured overview: housework such as renovators for comprehensive, understandable information to all questions regarding roof planning expansion and rehabilitation. Sean Rad, New York City has much experience in this field. It is addressed not only the head: galleries with several dozen photos and a 3D Planner allow to design the future roof even after the optical convenience. The expertise of renowned manufacturers inside dach.de. In short: Who is planning with dach.de is always on top.
