Sistema Masa continues its journey with great enthusiasm and many projects ahead. On this occasion we are going to talk about the multi-family building project that is being built on Calle Riera de Cassoles 66 in the Gràcia neighborhood of the city of Barcelona. It is a building with ventilated facades, ceramic cladding and a very colorful design.

Main differences between ventilated façades and glued façades

Within the options that exist for the enclosure of buildings, ventilated facades are considered an efficient and sustainable system, above what is offered by damped facades. Likewise, they stand out for their advantages: the ease of their installation because they require less maintenance and are more thermally efficient, since they provide better thermal insulation, they are positioned as one of the current trends in architecture.

Thermal insulation in ventilated facades

In a world that demands increasingly ecological and environmentally friendly measures, ventilated facades are currently recognized by builders, engineers and architects as the most efficient and sustainable construction system in terms of building enclosures.

Its system that allows the fixing of an independent coating, allowing an insulating layer to be housed, creates an air chamber that fulfills the functions of ventilation in summer and prevents moisture condensation in winter. These characteristics make it a system that provides the structure with high levels of energy savings.

How is the aesthetics of ventilated facades?

Over the years, all sectors have evolved and modernized for the benefit of human beings. An example of this is the area of architecture, which for years has been implementing the design of ventilated facades both in new construction and in rehabilitation. This construction system for building enclosures has become a trend in sustainable architecture, mainly because it contributes significantly to energy savings.
