Water houses Schleswig: Reference objects


A total of eleven water houses were built directly on the banks of the Schlei. The floating houses in the “Pionierhafen Schleswig” were clad with an outer shell made of wood and aluminium.

When choosing the materials, great importance was attached to robustness as well as sustainability. Due to the constant contact with water, the first floors were clad with PREFA siding.X in anthracite. The special aluminium façade system is particularly resistant and, above all, rust-proof. In addition, the striking look of the façade panels perfectly suits the extraordinary properties.

PREFA aluminium façade systems are designed as rear-ventilated façades. This means that any moisture behind the metal façade is removed by the circulating air.

Due to their light weight, PREFA products turn the renovation of roofs and façades into child’s play – and the cosmetic treatment also produces great results.
