New brilliance for an old school

Quite modern, the oldest secondary school in Salzburg!

The building of the Akademisches Gymnasium, which was built in the 17th century, underwent a general renovation not too long ago: Zinterl Architects preserved only the basic structures of the former school building and designed a spacious new building flooded with daylight.

Our OKATECH insulating glass with expanded metal inlay in copper makes part of the façade glow. During the day, it gives the building envelope an exceptional shine, and make it shimmer metallically in the sunlight. On the inside it bathes the foyer rooms in soothing warm tones and functions as a direction-selective daylight system as well as sun and glare protection.
