It is a multipurpose covering for the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Verona.
The ETFE cushions are 4 layer cushions. The upper and the lower layer have a thickness of 250 µm each. The inner layers have 100 µm thickness. The nominal pressure in the cushion system is 300 Pa. In winter time this will be increased to 600 Pa and in case of reasonable snow fall up to 800 Pa.
A minimized attachment detail had been developed for the ETFE cushions. Perpendicular to the surface area are small steel plates to which on either side the cushion is attached with a small extrusion profile. Integrated in this connection detail is a soft gutter that is guiding condensation towards the lower ends where it is guided in the drainage system
The structure consists of 7 transversal timber arches, which are connected to concrete foundations.
The arches have different shape to generate the volume of a soft curved structure. At one side of the structure there is a cubical technical building.
