Building in Colour - film & exhibition
A short documentary exploring the role of materials and colour in architecture, taking the work of Stirling Prize winning architect Michael Wilford CBE (1938–2023) as it's starting point. This film is complemented by an exhibition, 'Michael Wilford: A Legacy in Colour', hosted at the Sto Werkstatt during London Design Festival 2023.

Insulated Façade Systems: the ideal solution for the residential sector
As one of the pioneers of external wall insulation systems, (EWI) sometimes referred to as insulated render or ETICs, we can look back on over 50 years of experience. We offer a variety of solutions for the insulation of new build housing and the upgrading/ refurbishment of existing building alike. Our systems offer an excellent solution for the reduction of heating or cooling cost and can make a considerable contribution to, for example, the EU’s goals of climate neutrality by 2050. When applied to our thermal insulation systems the choice of render, brick slips, veneers as well as portfolio of tiles and façade profiles are ideal for every kind of residential project.
Whether small scale, domestic, single family housing, terraced housing or high rise apartments, we have a system for all technical demands and budget whilst simultaneously helping to reduce carbon emission.
StoSignature - bespoke façade surfaces
Historically façade surfaces have always been a composite of the material available and the skill of tradesmen involved. With our new Signature range we have developed and formalised a logical, structured approach to specifying rendered surfaces.
Texture + Effects = unlimited combinations:
Using state of the art through-coloured materials with additional effects such as metallic sheen coating, washes and glazes or applied granulates give you almost unlimited design scope.
Coloured Facade Possibilities: Playing with hues and shades
Our wide range of materials includes fade-resistant through-coloured render, modular glass panels, ceramic tiles and cladding to provide you with an inspiring, comprehensive and versatile toolkit for your creative ambitions. The juxtaposition of these surfaces while using the same substrate allows for the easy implementation of design ideas.
Creative possibilities with seamless and modular acoustic systems
Seamless, suspended or modular acoustic systems increase the quality of sound in a room, but they also leave room for the creative ideas of the designer. Acoustic board systems, acoustic sails and acoustic plaster finishes allow experimentation with a variety of different textures, shapes and colours.
