PROJECT DETAILS

The basic concept of the architects consisted of a structural core made of stacked, technically modified containers, surrounded by a steel substructure with a superimposed panel shell. The details of the development and the construction were centred on the extreme weather conditions in the Antarctic, with the highest thermal and mechanical stresses for the building enveloppe. The glass façade of the complex consists of a modified stick structure and triple-glazing insulation with a 15-degree inclination on the north and south sides. The main focus for the container windows and doors as well as the entrance areas to living spaces (lounge, laboratories) was the subject of fire protection. The Bharati Research Station amply demonstrates how even under the most extreme conditions, through close interaction of all construction participants, architectural ideas can become reality. The combination of serial products, specifically modified applications and individually tested fire-protection structures illustrates the flexibility and individuality of WICONA's technological solutions for exceptional ideas.
