Façades

The façade is the face of a building. The demand for economical energy consumption and the toughest aesthetic requirements can be met very effectively by renovating the external envelope. From solid-core board to timber cladding and cement fibre, we are familiar with a whole host of materials that have been tried and tested over time and can be used in different ways, depending on the architecture.

Constructing façades naturally with wood

The first thing anyone notices about a building is its façade. That initial glimpse of the outer shell leaves a lasting impression. This “skin” performs the dual function of pleasing the eye and protecting the building behind it. Timber façades date back a very long way – and can continue to prevail well into the future thanks to the design potential they offer, combined with the principles of construction.

The idea of a timber façade

Contemplating a wooden façade sets the planning team’s thought processes in motion. The location of the building and the aspects of its timber façades already set the parameters for the first stages of planning.
