Rüttenscheid is located south of Essen city center – an urban district that combines a high quality of life with the best infrastructure and a variety of leisure and cultural activities. This is where a modern residential building with high-quality, light-flooded apartments was built.
Translucent glass sliding elements in front of the spacious balcony loggias convey lightness and privacy for the residents at the same time.

Right in the middle – the new residential building in the south of Essen stands out with its excellent location on the one hand, and its modern architecture on the other. Only eight condominiums per building create individuality in a small and therefore manageable community of owners. High-quality equipment, light-filled rooms, open floor plans and spacious balcony loggias in south / west orientation meet the high demands placed on modern residential construction with ease.

Setting Urban Accents with Balcony Glazing

The balcony loggias were all equipped with GM TOPROLL® 10/14 sliding systems as well as GM RAILING® all-glass railings by Glas Marte and thus form a highlight of the object.

Translucent glass sliding elements with delicate and sophisticated system profiles convey lightness and functionality for residents’ privacy. These fit in perfectly with the neighboring and surrounding properties. The sliding elements pick up the neighborly glass balustrades – but in a modern and filigree way.

Harmonious Overall Impression

Particular attention was paid to the installation of the chosen GM TOPROLL® 10/14 system in front of the GM RAILING® system. Both systems should be mounted together on the upstands of the precast concrete elements. For this purpose, a special detail has been developed for the base profile, which perfectly combines the two systems. The upper edge of the clamping profile of the glass balustrade as well as the upper edge of the shoe of the sliding elements are aligned with one another, so that there is a harmonious overall impression for the viewer. The combination of the two systems from Glas Marte thus meets the highest architectural standards.
