Dancing maple leaves – aesthetic and functional

The new construction of the parish center in Sursee is part of the urban redevelopment of Vierherrenplatz. On the edge of the old town, the building offers space for private and public use. These include a café and a foyer open to the public as a meeting zone.
The golden anodised facade with the dancing maple leaves attracts attention even from a distance. Up close, the pattern dissolves into thousands of smaller and larger dots.

Family business with inventive spirit

The Wey company from Rothenburg spared no expense in the production of the façade elements: it even invested in an additional CNC milling machine to cope with the immense amount of work. The degree of complexity in this project is high, the precisely planned hole grid with varying hole size makes each facade element unique. Thanks to well thought-out planning with milled-in numbering, the Josef Wey AG installation team kept track of everything. After milling the perforation, shaping follows on the swivel bending machine.

Entrepreneur Josef Wey is proud of the in-house production. From one-offs to mass production: here there is an implementation option for every order. The demand for perfection and innovation is reflected in numerous details, for example in the assembly of the facade elements without visible intermediate webs.

"Our goal is to find aesthetic, innovative and technically flawless solutions," explains Josef Wey. The high-quality anodised coating in BWB Gold 1 color also matches this.
