Rheinzink, the trademark name for a titanium zinc alloy, was used in the integrated roofing design. Approximately 37,675-sq.-ft. of roof was covered with the material, using a traditional standing seam technique. The shiny material accents the mansard design, also offering durability, longevity and low maintenance, along with its aesthetic qualities.
The design effort, "Paul-Lincke-Hofe" was awarded top honors in the "Golden Lot 2001" which signaled the opening of the 11th annual Real Estate Congress held in Frankfurt last year. Both residential and commercial projects were considered for the prestigious award, which honor "the successful collaboration of economics, innovation, user-friendliness and architecture."
