The demand for family houses and villas with rainscreen facades has increased in recent months. The environmental advantages and energy saving of these types of systems is the main reason that leads the owners to install these facades in their homes.
The demands of the European Union to reduce the levels of energy consumption, have caused the real estate sector to bet on energy efficiency in buildings. Through state-of-the-art designs, new homes and buildings for public use will be built with more efficient materials to achieve the 20/20/20 objective demanded by the European Union.
The international projects will occupy much of the year 2017. Today we are talking about two new projects in Mexico with ventilated façades of Sistema Masa. The first one is the Mérida Auditorium and the second is a residential building in Guadalajara.
The Mies Van Der Rohe Awards presented by the European Union every two years recognize in this edition the social value of the rehabilitation of buildings. The five finalist projects highlight the quality and historical importance of rehabilitation, but only one of them will rise with this prestigious architectural award on 16 March.
The high level of insulation guaranteed by ventilated façades makes them perfectly installed in hazardous designs and very close to the sea, where erosion and humidity itself cause significant damage to materials or façades that are not well prepared. One of the last projects that has begun Sistema Masa is a villa that is characterized by its impressive views of the Mediterranean Sea and its large-format porcelain coating.
