Our newest project: Veste Oberhaus in Passau, Germany
After a delay of several months due to the floods in Passau, the new visitor centre and restaurant in the fortress Veste Oberhaus in Passau was officially opened. The fortress is a cultural landmark and used to be the residence of the prince-bishops of Passau. Today it houses the town's museum. The place reveals a fascinating view of the Danube and the old city.
Our products Gneiss Gloria Wall stones and Gneiss Gloria sawn wall stones were used for the restoration and reconstruction of the retaining walls of the fortress, and for the construction of the new restaurant Das Oberhaus. For the restaurant terrace we provided specially selected plates with three sawn sides and one naturally split side. The plates used around the windows were also specially selected with even natural split sides.
The wall cladding with Gneiss Gloria sawn wall stones is a work of art. Complex engineering calculations allowed the arrangement of stones on free-standing metal sets, while maintaining the integrity of the building.
Since its opening the new restaurant has become the most popular place in Passau, and is reserved for weeks ahead.
It was a great honour that after a long procurement procedure in competition with natural stones from around the world, architects and representatives of the agency to protect the cultural and historical heritage chose Bulgarian natural stone. The tender procedure and sending samples for approval took more than 10 months.
