In new constructions or refurbishments in single-family homes or blocks of flats, Fundermax Compact Exterior gives a unrivaled character and protection to the building. Max Compact Exterior panels resist the weather conditions of homes located anywhere: in the heart of the city, in very isolated areas with desert climate or near the sea, like the Condominio Jazz Club in Florianópolis (Brazil), located just a few meters away from the beach.

It is very useful that its maintenance is very scarce, cleaning is easy and it resists scratches and impacts. In addition, its resistance to solar rays ensures that the panels will not lose their color over the years.
The easy installation of Max Compact Exterior makes it the ideal material for rehabilitation. Nowadays, after analyzing rehabilitated buildings with Fundermax, it is obtained that thermal transmissions have been reduced with an important contribution of energy-saving, effective acoustic isolation, and a durable external enclosure.
For instance, the residents of this neighborhood in Burgos, in northern Spain, with very harsh winters, say that the temperature inside their homes has risen 5 degrees compared to the previous winter - before the rehabilitation with Max Compact Exterior.
This residential property complex, Max + Moritz in Erding, near Munich, was constructed in the 1970s, these nine and twelve-story buildings have now been upgraded to comply with the latest energy efficiency and fire protection requirements. Before renovation could commence, around 7,000 m² of the old facade (containing asbestos) had to be removed and disposed of. The design brief included the integration of roller shutters, doors, and balcony railings. Ingenieurbüro Kutzschenbach from Grasbrunn decided in favor of NCore - as only this material could meet the challenging demands of the specification: high technical qualities, sustainability features, excellent aesthetics and a durable/easy-to-maintain, anti-graffiti surface.

The ATRIUM is located in Austria, surrounded by the forest. Its sleek cubic design allows for a highly functional floor plan. The building was named after its atrium shaped exploration zone located at the center of the building with its floor to ceiling windows and gleaming glass roof elements, which ensure the building is illuminated beautifully. Spacious living units, between 75 and 160 square meters in size, are situated on four levels around the ATRIUM.
Atrium in Austria, by DI Thomas Kranabetter. Featuring decors 0085 White, from the Colour range of decors, and 0161 Light Afro, from the Wood decors.
In other cities where the tendency is to make taller buildings, the verticality of the design combining different decors gives them a touch that distinguishes them from the rest.
In the first picture, the Social Housing Tower Of 75 Units In Europa Square / Roldán + Berengué in Barcelona features 2 different decors from the Material decors while in the second picture, Arquitectura Productions chose 3 different shades of grey to combine from the Colour decors. In the last picture, several buildings in Lithuania designed by architect A. Vyšniausko architektų dirbtuvė feature many different Colour decors - orange, beige, grey...
As for single-family homes, some owners opt for passive houses, like this one in Austria. In terms of its style, the Passivhaus Eisenstraße takes a very formal and typical ‘regional’ design approach, in order to complement the houses you tend to find along Eisenstraße: gable roof, light-maximizing windows, and clean, simple lines. Within this envelope hides a contemporary cube design with a barrier-free accessibility ramp, sliding sunshades, a spacious terrace area and a living area of around 150 square meters. Both cuboids are covered by an impressive steel frame, which creates a bridge to Neubruck and the surrounding region.

Private homes sometimes allow a modern design worthy of mention, with all the benefits of being protected by Max Compact Exterior panels that allows isolating the outside temperature of the interior. This detached house in Spain features decor 0085 White in NG Gloss finish, and so does the picture below of another detached house in Hungary, but this time in décor 0080 Black.

Max Compact Exterior is also suitable for balconies, floors, furniture… enabling the possibility of continuing the design from facade to balcony or flooring, or using these applications to distinguish the building like in this neighborhood with balconies in yellow and green.
