Project

The train station of Rosenheim is the largest station between Munich, Salzburg and Innsbruck. On the occasion of its renovation for the Landesgartenschau (State Horticultural Show) in 2010 Temme // Obermeier created a perfectly shaped PTFE/glass arch-supported roof. Its primary structure consists of a hybrid frame design. Its edge girders are designed as all-steel frames suspended and braced by a rope system. The design not only meets the demand for modernity, but also sets new esthetic standards. In addition, it provides for a well-planned water runoff and reduces the danger of roof avalanches.
