Urban Hamburg. 58 Air 2 shower solutions for a redensification project.

The Free Hanseatic City of Hamburg is much-loved. The city currently has a population of 1.8 million and that will only grow in number. As such, modern redensification concepts are of particular importance. One such project has been carried out at Hofweg 94, an address where additional living space has been developed using skilful architecture. To achieve this, a 2-storey commercial building had to give way to a new 5-storey construction. As such, the same footprint has been used to create new residential comfort for the high-end market segment, incorporating, of course, products from DUSCHOLUX.

Considerable range of installation options

The transparent and precisely-fitted Air 2 shower enclosure was installed in a wide range of dimensions. In one apartment it could be integrated in a spatially effective manner as a bath screen, in the next apartment as a floor-to-ceiling Walk-in solution. This demonstrates the diversity of the frameless Air 2 shower enclosure’s application options.

Unique glass finishing

DUSCHOLUX CareTec® Pro comes as standard with Air 2 shower enclosures. This innovative glass finishing provides the occupants with real added value in the bathroom environment. The permanently dirt-repellent surface considerably reduces the amount of cleaning required. The surface only needs to be cleaned once every one to two weeks with a microfibre cloth. This saves time and money, protects the user’s health and helps the environment.

Ideal comprehensive package

DUSCHOLUX was involved in the planning process from an early stage, put forward suggestions and fostered the business relationship. This process provided the inspiration for a solution that saw the product installed directly onto the wall corner, thus actively enhancing the overall aesthetics of the room.
