KKL Roof

Inspection and correction of the roof for the conservation of the KKL Luzern

The main characteristic of the KKL Luzern is the boldly projecting cantilevered roof that seems to float over the construction. It unites the three parts of the building and lends a dignified peacefulness to the location. The surface of the roof consists of copper sheets, while the bottom is made from 2,000 aluminum plates. In these are reflected the lake along with the patterns of light and shadow in the surroundings.

As an expression of care for such an architectural masterpiece, the roof of the KKL Luzern has been renovated due to defects that had been found. The corrective work ended on September 22nd 2014.
