Detailed information

Leica Camera AG has returned to its roots - to the place where the 35 mm camera was developed 100 years ago. The striking, curved buildings that make up the new company headquarters in Wetzlar draw their inspiration from the world of photography. The RAICO THERM+ S-I und A-I systems were used for the glass façades and glass roofs.

THERM+ S-I with flat press strips for 1,018 m2 of curved and 875 m2 of straight panes, THERM+ A-I for 450 m2 of glass roof with two-degree angle of inclination, 240 straight panes and 52 custom panes.
