Roman Museum Archaeological Park

Protective Building for the Historic Baths at the Xanten Archaeological Park

The modern building that rises up over the LVR-Römermuseum (Roman museum), planned by the Gatermann + Schossig architect's office in Cologne, is supported on the foundation walls of a huge Roman hall that is almost 80 meters long and 20 meters wide. The new structure almost exactly reflects the original dimensions of the building:

The main supporting structure of the museum hall, which was produced by our company, is formed by 14 huge articulated steel frames made of welded hollow sections. Inside, the majority of the exhibition meanders through the space in the form of a filigree steel structure on freely hanging ramps and levels. Thanks to the threaded suspension connection designed by CHRISTMANN + PFEIFER, which connects the catwalks to the ceiling using tension rods, the walkways appear to be suspended in space.
