Hofmann Facades offers total solutions for natural stone facades using traditional and innovative cladding materials, knowledge of building envelope technology, and stone manufacturing capabilities.
Natural Stone Facade Cladding
Natural stone requires no energy to transform and very little energy to quarry and fabricate; it can be 100% recycled to aggregate, gravel or brick. Stone has a low level of embodied carbon as well as operational carbon since natural stone-clad buildings require only 30% of the energy to heat and cool compared to glass facades. Natural stone’s durability and ease of maintenance give it an extended lifecycle compared to other cladding materials; as does the graceful aging of stone-clad buildings.
Warthau Yellow Sandstone and Hohenzollernpark Sandstone by Hofmann Facades are natural stones that formed 150 million years ago. Polish Sandstone can be used for any facade application in any climatic condition. It is also suitable for interior and exterior applications making it possible for designers to bring the stone inside and outside with seamless transitions.
