Who said innovation forgets tradition? The new Sistema Masa project that we present today is a clear example of how innovative features such as ventilated facades can be perfectly part of a design that respects tradition. In this case, the construction of this housing is fully in line with the building tradition of the Minho River.
In this new project, Sistema Masa has installed its ventilated facades in a residential complex situated beside the sea in the Ronda Litoral of Barcelona. Due to the proximity of the sea, all the aluminum elements of the vented facades contains a special protection against saltpeter.
The main function of ventilated facades is to improve the insulation of the buildings reducing the energy consumption. The insulating layer ventilated facade supports the free circulation of air through their cavity, but what happens in summer? Let's see how a ventilated facade works during the months of high temperatures.
