School boarding house Fürstenburg

180 new aluminium windows

This school boarding house, a recipient of the 2017 CasaClima Award, is regarded as an architectural gem – and rightly so. In just 13 months the architect managed a real accomplishment on its four floors. The white futuristic building, which houses 100 students, features 180 new windows. The dark, slim aluminium exterior frames of the FIN-72 windows and FIN-Project windows form a striking contrast to the bright façade. The design and aesthetics of the Nova-line products gives the building a modern, all-glass look. The modular design of the FIN-Vista window walls permits easy integration of the entry doors. The PVC core ensures excellent heat insulation even with the numerous glass surfaces.
