What do architects think about STENI’s facade panels and what do they see as important for being able to meet their clients’ wishes and needs? We asked architect Kasper Kullegaard, who worked with STENI on the building project for the Samsøvej assisted living centre – known for its curved black facade – and this article highlights some of his answers.
SHARP REDUCTION IN MAINTENANCE COSTS
In 2013, the Nonnebanken housing association in Herfølge, Denmark replaced 3,200 square metres of traditional wooden cladding with STENI’ façade panels. This has resulted in significantly lower maintenance costs, less graffiti and stable rent.
IMPROVING BOTH ARCHITECTURE AND QUALITY OF LIFE
With its newly renovated façades, additional sound absorption measures and balconies clad with STENI Colour, the Brunevang residential complex in Rødovre, Denmark, has been given a significant makeover.
SHELTERED HOUSING IN A SAFE ENVIRONMENT
Badeloch Housing Corporation in Eindhovenlaan in the Netherlands has built sheltered housing based on an entirely new concept. They chose façade panels from STENI.
When the municipality of Køge in Denmark built the kindergarten and nursery “Børnehuset Valhalla”, they employed a new and untraditional testing method for selecting materials for the façade – The Moon Car Test. The idea was to ensure they had a durable and maintenance-free façade, thus ensuring a long service life and low maintenance costs.
