The transformation of the cities according to the new housing trends is a challenge that, in many cases, aims to combine a contemporary language, both functional and aesthetic, with the territory. A challenge that is won not only on a structural level but also with the careful choice of materials and finishes, which define the character of the buildings.
This is what happened in Castelfranco Veneto, in the Northern Italy, for the construction of a new residential complex: the client intended to create an iconic architecture for the place, different from the surrounding buildings for its design and using of durable and low-maintenance materials.
The solution proposed by the architect Andrea Fantinato, in charge of the project, is a linear and essential but at the same time dynamic structure due to the interlocking of volumes, green balconies and the alternation of finishes, choosing resistant and cutting-edge materials.
Among these, we note the Twix by Déco cladding system with slatted effect which, as the architect declares: “with its shape and its pluses, it is able to define and characterize the project in the best possible way”.
Used to cover 120sqm of façade, Twix by Déco is even more evident thanks to LED light blades inserted in the walls that give further prominence to the material and architecture of the building, even at night.
In addition, continues the architect Fantinato, the product “proved to be easy to install and flexible during the installation phases” and, for the years to come, it will allow to satisfy the demand for durability and low maintenance: Twix in fact combines the advantages of the new generation UltraShield® by Déco composite wood (patented technology and registered trademark by the company) with the warmth of a natural wood product. It guarantees high performance including seamless installation even with 90° edges and maintaining a perfect symmetry of the elements over time.
The special plastic shield extruded together with the internal product mix of UltraShield® by Déco protects the modular panel making it durable, without any alteration of color over the years, with an incomparable resistance to scratches and stains, resistant up to 25 years after installation, without the need of maintenance. Finally, in line with the company’s philosophy, the proposals in UltraShield® by Déco are eco-sustainable, 100% recyclable.
