Kultur­haus Aue, D

Architect: Inge­nieurbüro Klaus Georgi GmbH, Crot­ten­dorf, DE

The pro­tected monu­ment Kultur­haus Aue (known as the Erzgebirge Dis­trict Cultural Centre since 2008)
was built in the 1950s by SDAG Wismut, a mining company with a core workforce of around 45,000 employees, and was ini­ti­ally used by the orga­ni­sa­tion as an arts and lei­sure centre. In the 1960s, the Kultur­haus was taken over by Aue dis­trict, becoming a public culture house for the region with a mul­tifunc­tional cha­racter.
Kultur­haus Aue has now been pro­viding cultural diver­sity in the region for more than 50 years. It has always pro­vided a plat­form for high-quality national and inter­na­tional stars.

Since 1990, the Kultur­haus has been sub­ject to ongoing con­ver­sion and renova­tion works. This includes a range of measures to improve fire pro­tec­tion, including renewing the smoke exhaust installa­tion. The result is a rep­re­senta­tive com­munity building from the Wismut era typical of the town, pre­served to the finest detail and combi­ning the architecture of the “Na­tional Tra­di­tion” with modern forms.

GU supplied the smoke and heat exhaust ven­ti­la­tion system (drives, control centre, RWA air supply) for this building pro­ject. This required a special solu­tion to ensure that the 2-sash case­ment win­dows could open and close con­sis­tently.
