Using design ideas that mixed modernity and small-town charm, the architects from nearby Lachen, led by Michael Staehli, pinpointed a modern façade system that would maximize natural sunlight indoors. According to the design team at Staehli AG, the Quadroclad Honeycomb system from Hunter Douglas incorporates horizontal elements of aluminum panels with vertical extensions of translucent glass screens with serigraphy. The architects custom-designed the printed glass panels, which Hunter Douglas integrated into the Honeycomb cladding and backup system. This system was not only cost effective, but it also came in a wide range of panel shapes, colors, and sizes, giving Staehli AG the ultimate in flexibility. MPS Siebnen was even able to apply its mission and teaching principles to the building elevations: The glass with serigraphy was custom-printed in accordance to the architects’ plan with the names of school subjects including "mathematik" and "genetix" along with various mathematical formulas.
