The architecture studio OHLAB
, established in Palma de Mallorca and especialized in PassivHaus construction, has relied on Grupo GUBIA´s technical department
to develop the wooden facade
of one of the most emblematic projects.
It is a 7-floor residential complex located on Paseo de Palma, that will represent a landmark in the city for its architecture, sustainability, energy efficiency, urban integration, quality of materials, interior design and comfort. Designed following Passivhaus standars to achieve maximum energy efficiency and an air conditioning demand of only 15kWh / m2a, it will become a construction with a very low energy cost.
Most of the façade is made up of fixed and sliding panels made of slats of heat-treated wood. They are a brise-soleil for homes, lights and shadows allow to take advantages of the sun throughout the year. The wooden slats, with sections of 42×42, 68×42 and 90x42mm and diffrent separtions between them are fixed to an aluminum frame resistant to the marine environment. The random arrangement of fixed and sliding modules per floor provide vibration and movement to this facade, which will become the highest in Spain after the summer.
Architects: Pedro Llorente
Woodworks: wooden facade, custom carpentry, bamboo panelling, irocco deck
This guest pavilion is part of a large rural villa, in a village near to Seville.
Its beatiful facade, made of thermowood pine, is the result of a long time of research that begins with a similar project for a villa designed for the architecture studio Vicens&Ramos in Marbella. Years of test with thermowood from different origins, plywood boards form different manufacturers, hanging and anchoring systems, exterior finisihing of easy maintenance… have been done to achieve a facade where each element could be easily replaced or remove.
Part of the interior in the villa is panelling with bamboo: floor to ceiling sliding doors, ceilings, custom furniture… Elegant, warm and beatiful coatings.
