The design uses pieces of terracotta to create the dynamic patterns with different tones, is an allegory representing the culture of these people.

Project Description

Flexbrick ceramic material plays key role in La Gota Cultural Centre in Navalmoral de la Mata, Cáceres, Spain. The building’s façade consists of a double skin comprising a glass wall and Flexbrick ceramic material – a thermal protection system that prevents excessive solar heat gain during the summer months. A hybrid building designed to house exhibitions, the cultural centre consists of box-like structures stacked irregularly to form five storeys.

PARKING SAINT ROC

PARKING SAINT ROCH – MONTPELLIER

Project Description

Flexbrick is applied at the parking’s façade favouring its urban integration and the extension of the public space between the project and the train station nearby. The alternation of solid construction and latticework plays with the light inside and outside the building and makes possible the insertion of natural elements, as the honeysuckle that grows all over the perimeter.

Project Description

The application of Flexbrick at the extension of this modernist building, designed by Gaudí, maintains and extends the textures of the original project. The light-permeable façade sifts the heat and the light inside the building and it allows more freedom and flexibility in the distribution of windows and opaque elements needed.

CODERCH’S GIRASOL HOUSING

THE “GIRASOL” HOMES BY ARCHITECT JOSÉ ANTONIO CODERCH, REFURBISHED WITH THE NEW FLEXBRICK® SIDING

Previous
Next

Project Description

It has been fifty years since the construction of the Girasol building, a set of homes considered one of the ten most architecturally representative modern buildings in the city of Madrid. Under the management of the Atelier Galante, the facades have been respectfully and ambitiously refurbished, as their vertical tile panels had been falling off for some time now. This position encouraged the mortar grouting to erode due to rainwater, which even damaged the adhesive layer and led to a progressive loss in the capacity of the panels to remain adhered. This is why, after several attempts to repair them, the facade refurbishment system required redundant safety, in case the adherence of the mortar failed once again. Javier Galante therefore chose to solve the problem using the Flexbrick® ceramic tile system, which hides a mesh that is mechanically attached to the base. This gave an added safeguard in light of any failure of the adhesive: the panels are confined by the mesh, which is bolted to the base.
