What's behind facade insulation by Sto?

November 30, 2018

Flexible design and the traditional look of brick don’t have to be a contradiction in terms. This is being demonstrated by Paul Vandenbussche in a school extension project in the Belgian town of Londerzeel, which he has designed with brick slips.

As brick slips do not fulfil a structural function, they do not have to be arranged horizontally in a bond formation, making flexible patterns and even changes in direction a possibility. Vandenbussche’s decision to use two types of slip with different surface textures and his selection of Verolith® to set additional accents really bring the school building to life. And the architect has even managed to include all of this in a highly efficient external wall insulation system.
