Nature and sustainability

The environment and nature have always been of great importance at Sky-Frame – after all, we try to integrate them into spaces and create free-flowing transitions. For us, it goes without saying that we strive to preserve them and constantly check our processes for the optimal use of resources. This allows us to avoid wasting resources and energy.

Not least because of this, we invested in a photovoltaic system for our new building at the Frauenfeld site and integrated a brise-soleil with meadowy vegetation into the facade, which provides shade in the summer and allows additional light into the building in winter.
