The cable net wall forms the facade for the lobby of the 38 storey office and hotel complex with a shopping arcade. The facade spans in vertical max. 18 m between the floor and the first ceiling and 13 m in horizontal direction between the building columns. The curved cables in horizontal and vertical direction are pretensioned against each other. The glass is detached from the cable net, the dead load is carried by additional vertical cables. Wind loads are transferred to the cable net by stainless steel struts. The glass panels that also carry the wind loads in the corners brace the façade.
