For this 4-story residential building containing 11 low-energy apartments, the architects set out to meet all the environmental requirements set by the City of Paris, particularly those in regard to thermal efficiency.
Ductal® cladding panels were chosen as the best solution as they deliver a detailed design layout and maintain the personality of building.
This project is a solution for a stone-like cladding applied to a wood frame structure. As a very fluid material, Ductal® has a surface quality that is visually superior to traditional concretes while retaining the authenticity of a mineral material, it allows the building to blend into the existing streetscape and use external thermal insulation of the highest quality.
Ductal® Rainscreen Cladding panel solutions provide energy efficiency and respond to increasingly rigorous thermal building standards and norms worldwide. By adopting a sealed exterior layer of insulation, these systems allow less expensive retrofits and renovations of older buildings while also offering a cost-effective insulation solution for new buildings.
The big advantage of Ductal® lies in the thinness of the panels, making it possible to maintain reasonable dimensions for the facade.
