The entrance of RTV Rijnmond (Kraton 230) is signified by a large semi-structural bonded glass façade. Behind this is the ‘studio square’ next to which the radio and tv studio’s are situated.
To achieve a maximum transparency, no columns have been placed in the façade. The glass façade (750 m²) hangs like a curtain on the two projecting office floors. The glass planes are placed between three ‘wind braces’ and attached to the cantilevering steel construction with two rows of steel tension rods. The glass panels haven been attached to the horizontal wind braces with a click-on profile, the vertical openings between the panels have been filled with UV-resistant joint sealing compound.
