Special constructions

Sauerland cathedral builders

A special construction project in the category "Handmade 2.0". After 4 months of planning, production, implementation and construction, we can proudly say: We are Sauerland cathedral builders!

The mission: Since not all hotel rooms of the Hotel Mondial am Dom Cologne - MGallery have a view of Cologne's landmark, a replica of the "Cologne Cathedral" located directly nearby was to decorate the inner courtyard in a modern and abstract form. The most famous view, the west facade with the two high Gothic towers, as well as the high choir and the side aisles can be recognised in a reduced form. The replica is welded from aluminium profiles and partly clad with expanded metal.

In order not to stress the roof of the parking deck below, the dome stands on a substructure that is connected to the building and is thus self-supporting.
1.2 tonnes of steel used testify to large dimensions: 8 m high, 3.65 m wide, 7.95 m long.

Together with the agency neues Marketing, we created a two-minute film from our snapshots and impressions that will remain in our memories for a long time. With this project from the tranquil town of Sundern in the Sauerland region, we have immortalised ourselves in the Rhenish metropolis of Cologne.

Zebra & giraffe at the "Pullmann Hotel" in Berlin.

After we have laid the zebra for the inauguration of the Zoo in Pullmann Hotel in Berlin in the year 2018, now we are ready to move forward. Around 6 months of development, construction period, and planning implementation, summing up to 1,675 working hours of planning, drafting, constructing and installing, now we have all agreed that we have accomplished something really special. Such a creation is one of a kind in Germany, if not even worldwide.

Now standing triumphantly in the foyer of one of the best hotels in our capital Berlin, is a 7m high giraffe made in a small town in Sundern, Sauerland. 14 employees who worked on different tasks, using altogether 1,100 Kg of Aluminum, created a giraffe that weighs approximately 750 Kg, with roughly 300 spots.

With such an impressive construction, we can proudly say: “Handcrafting” is our expertise. With great care and commitment to the highest quality standard, we have created something absolutely unique. In our “Making -of” video, we are presenting to you a glimpse of the mounting and motion picture of the finished giraffe in Pullmann Hotel in Berlin.

A table for the Mercure Hamburg City.

Furthermore to the pure lighting industry, we are also always looking for new challenges in other areas of the hotel industry.

In addition to a new lighting concept in its rooms, the Mercure Hotel City in Hamburg can also look forward to a side table, which currently serves as a bedside table in the rooms.
