SOLID GROUND FOR HIGH-CLASS LIVING

Dichterpark Residence, Bad Nauheim, Germany

Solid ground for high-class living

The challenge for the architects were the original floor constructions, made from beams and timber floorboards dating back a hundred years. Not surprisingly, they showed signs of unevenness and many defects. As a result, a new, more durable, and stable floor construction was needed. AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Floor proved to be the right floor solution to meet these difficult requirements.

  • Architect: Principal Projektgesellschaft Luisenstr. GmbH & Co. KG, Germany
  • Project time frame: 2006–2007
  • Type of building: Residential building
  • System: AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Floor
  • Application area: 1,800 m2

What is known as the Poets’ District lies in the heart of Bad Nauheim, a well-known health resort in Hesse, Germany. Here, the “Dichterpark Residence” was established in a former sanatorium, a beautiful building dating back to 1907. During an elaborate reconstruction and refurbishment, a total of 19 state-of-the-art residential units were built here. However, the implementation of the generously proportioned floor plans meant that not a single stone of the inner walls was left standing. Large parts of the interior fittings were implemented using Knauf drywall technology, from the roof construction and ceiling construction through to the inner walls.

But the greatest challenge for the architects were the original floor constructions, made from beams and timber floorboards dating back a hundred years. Not surprisingly, they showed signs of unevenness and many defects. As a result, a new, more durable, and stable floor construction was needed. AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Floor proved to be the right floor solution to meet these difficult requirements. Based on inorganic materials, these cement boards are strong and lightweight, yet offer all the advantages of a wet cement screed. They are easy to handle and quick to install, providing the perfect substructure for all kinds of floor coverings, such as the high-quality parquet in the exclusive apartments of the Dichterpark Residence.
