Pöschenriet Sports Ground in Neftenbach is striking: amidst the lush green of the sports and leisure ground – reminiscent of a large flying object – the newly-built facility marks the entrance to the village. The architects of this complex put to good use several of the advantages offered by Bruag’s facade panels. On the one hand they were able to create a large-scale facade design, thanks to the availability of panels of up to 6 m, and on the other they were able to put the facade recesses and perforations to good use in the cloakroom area. The letters spelling out ‘Pöschenriet’ can be seen from afar; they were made from Formboard top pine panels.
What is not obvious, however, is how they are held in place, as Bruag employed its stove-enamelling process to make the screws the exact same colour as the facade panels. These ensure that the screws match the facade panels exactly – meaning there was one less problem to resolve.
