Architecture projects with the latest trends in façades18 July 2018 The changing and evolving nature of the architecture will make a qualitative leap next year 2018 with new designs, materials and colors for facades. Surprising shapes, minimalist lines, sustainable and more efficient materials, will be the protagonists of one of the most important architectural structures of any project: the facades.
Butech, the product of the PORCELANOSA Grupo specializing in building systems, has all the technology, resources and experience required by new trends in facades for single-family homes.
#Trend 1: Volumes, die cuts and backlighting
The volumetric comes from the hand of irregular, geometric and voluptuous facades. A trend that requires flexible, malleable and resistant materials such as the compact Krion® Solid Surface mineral. A product resistant to sudden changes in temperature, humidity or aridity; and with an extraordinary versatility that allows to create singular and disparate finishes.
The single-family house Casa Balint by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos, Belle Isle by Jochen Lendle or the Mallorcan house Eagles Dare by Gras Arquitectos, use Butech's K-FIX system to dress their ventilated façades with Krion® in white
#Trend 2: Mix & Match of materials
The combination of materials is another of the most demanded trends in the design and architecture sector. In XLight ventilated facades, like the one we see in the Lagos Nigeria luxury residence, we find materials of such disparate nature and design as the XLight extra-thin porcelain stoneware from Urbatek, the compact Krion® mineral and the natural stone from L'Antic Colonial.
Depending on the combination of the materials you can get styles as different as the industrial, with details in concrete or metal; or the minimalist with Krion® sheets or marble.
One of the latest solutions developed by Butech for the installation of facades are the modular systems for XLight or the HP Panel system for the natural stone sheet Airslate, a system developed to facilitate the placement of the material.
