MDFACADE WAVE SOLUTION USED IN A PROJECT BY PROMONTORIO

May 15, 2017

Renovation and rehabilitation of GS1 Portugal’s headquarters building, developed by the architecture and interior design studio, PROMONTORIO, includes extensive application of expanded cork agglomerate –Wave MDF, Amorim Isolamentos – in its interior.

Completed in 2016, the project was implemented with the participation of the artist Alexandre Farto (aka Vhils), internationally known for his distinctive work in reconversion of the exterior fašades of buildings. This 1970s building is located on IAPMEI’s campus in Lisbon, one of Portugal’s first buildings specifically created for business innovation. From the point of view of its architectural design, it was planned using an orthogonal grid, inspired by the Anglo-Saxon university model. The idea of ​reusing materials inside the building is intentional. The crudeness of the exposed concrete elements and the absence of a false ceiling, which exposes elements such as electricity cables and air conditioning ducts, contrasts with the comfort and soft feel of the materials and finishes, including the expanded cork agglomerate, as well as linoleum, carpets and other textiles. GS1 Portugal is a Portuguese subsidiary of the international organisation responsible for implementation of systems for the identification of technological licensing of companies and products.
