Sete Lagoas, Brazil.
Material: ULMA – M-05 – Earth
Ventilated Facade: 12,000 m²
From the Ulma engineer: The original project proposed a curved facade with a negative slope made of the same material; ULMA has solved this challenge by making a metal supporting structure of aluminium profiles on which the polymer concrete panels are installed. The format of the facade panels measure 1800mm long and have a height of between 800 and 900 mm, following all the horizontal joints of the building”. David Sevilla, ULMA expert.
Anchorage, AK, United States
Photographs: Kevin G. Smith
From the architect: Perched above the landscape like an extended tree house, the platform stretches across the hillside following the topographical subtleties of the forest. Expansive glazing exposes each space to the foreground wooded layers and the distant commanding panoramic views north and west. Yet, the spaces maintain a high degree of privacy from the surrounding neighbors. Exterior surfaces are clad with Copper Parklex composite panels, concrete, and metal roofing.
