The newly renovated Natura 2000 visitor centre is located in the former community centre of the small town Garešnica (Croatia).
The renovation was carried out in the course of the project Green Gardens of Poilovlja which was implemented by the European Union. On an area of 1,694 m2 there are offices, conference and multipurpose rooms, classrooms and a laboratory. The furniture is representative of the area Poilovlje with the aim of raising awareness of endangered species and reducing the destruction of flora and fauna.
In 2021, the entire area with a volume of 1,250 m2 was revitalised and given a new façade. ProMetall produced 575 perforated metal sheet panels (in RAL 9010) with unusual unperforated edges, and 130 expanded metal panels type “Gumpoldskirchen” (in RAL 7016) and delivered them to Garešnica where a local metal construction company professionally installed them in the impressive building. The result is a fusion of classical architecture with a state-of-the-art, visually appealing material that gives the building structure a timeless touch. White “chain mail“ protecting those who protect everything that constitutes our natural environment.
PERFORATED METAL - A CLASSIC WITH A NEW COATING
Perforated metal sheets have been produced in Europe since the late 19th century. In the past, perforated metal sheets were mainly used as sieve and filter elements and as protective plates in industry and machine construction. Creative designers and Western European product experts found new applications for the functional metal sheet – in the form of innovative designs for façade construction. Perforated metal sheets are popular for visual protection of façades in modern residential, hotel and office complexes and are often used for staircases and balconies. Nevertheless, perforated metal sheet has retained its practical character in the design sector and is also used as sound insulation in building construction.
