Atrium "Deutscher Industrie- und Handelstag" - DIHT
The glass-covered atrium of the office complex for
"Deutscher Industrie- und Handelstag"
Berlin - Breite Straße
A decorative effect has been installed with a burmese
The internationally renowned architect Prof. Gustav Lange
(Hamburg) designed the layout with the giant bamboo which reaches 14 m high and has a crown
diameter of approximately 12 m.
To increase the micro cimate for the wellbeing of this
tropical plant a fogging system was to be installed with clear specifications that no pipes
or nozzle mount whatsoever should be visible to leave the total impression undisturbed.
We solved this problem with mast construction of stainless
steel - sanded and brushed - which is located at the centre of the bamboo-grove and remains
As the installation room with all aggregates is quite a distance
away we constructed the mast-foot as a service room which is now covered with earth and can
be entered by means of a manhole for maintenance purposes.
Here all necessary valves and the automatic frost-guardians
All other feeding pipes and control cables for the feelers in the mast-head
are led invisible thru the mast-pipe. All cables leading to the central control room are
below the pavement.
The second design parameter by the architect - the fog has
to descend in a circular area into the crown of the bamboo grove - could not be resolved by
our standard fogging nozzles as the throw of these nozzles is not far enough. Together with
our technological partner, Elmer Corporation in Obergrafendorf, Lower Austria [ contact at
firstname.lastname@example.org ] we developed special nozzles which comply with these specifications.
The bamboo grove is planted in a circular, lowered trough.
Below the paving of the lobby another string of fogging
nozzles has been installed which provide together with indirect lighting a special effect
designed for evening events in the lobby area.
