Kriens, Switzerland
Project name
2800 m²
Kriens, Switzerland
HP Gasser AG
A very special roof for the car dealership that not only appeals to customers visually but also protects cars from moisture.


A panoramic view of the mountains and textile architecture go hand in hand, especially with a design such as that implemented by HP Gasser AG in Kriens, Switzerland.
In 1997, the Autoarena car dealership had this custom roof built, killing two birds with one stone in the process. On the one hand, this canopy is a real eye-catcher for potential customers, and on the other hand, it protects cars from precipitation without blocking them from view.
The membrane for this project was manufactured by Low & Bonar, and although it is exposed to extreme weather conditions close to Mount Pilatus, it still adorns the car dealership in Switzerland 20 years later.

After 20 years…

…HP Gasser AG was asked if they could replace the membrane with a new one. A new MEHLER TEXNOLOGIES ® VALMEX®FR MEHATOP® F Type III membrane was used to give the 20-year-old building a fresh look. The new material has properties similar to the previous material, but with the addition of a new paint system developed in 2017. The advantages of the material are long-lasting colour, resilience and high tensile strength.
With the new gleaming white roof, Autoarena retains its unique position as the most distinctive-looking car dealership in Kriens or even all of Switzerland.
