In Bovenkarspel (NL), a new building project consisting of 24 energy-neutral social housing units was completed in a short space of time. An unusual project, because the units were built on the existing foundations. TBE-ZA, a Dutch architectural office from Volendam was responsible for the design, in which they incorporated the innovative ROCKWOOL® Rockzero wall system and Rockpanel facade cladding.
Now that working from home has rapidly become a permanent feature of life, more and more people in the Netherlands are building an extension to their home. However, you will not often come across such an unusual extension as the one built to Eric Manders' house in Bathmen. Eric is Business Director at Rockpanel and, as such, there was no doubt in his mind about the selection of the materials he wanted to use for the facade of his new home office. The Rockpanel Woods facade panels, which are vertically installed in three different widths, give the extension a sleek and modern look and feel that matches perfectly with the traditional farmhouse.
The facade of the new Smilehullet day-care centre in Beder, a small town just south of Aarhus (DK), stimulates play and creativity. The compact new building has windows of different heights and is equipped with robust facade panels in three earthy colours that add a creative touch. The design and layout of the former building, which housed the after-school centre, were also used for Beder's new Smilehullet day-care centre, which is now open for children and parents to enjoy.
The University of Bedfordshire’s Luton Campus has been completely re-dressed in a stunning mix of Rockpanel External facades, providing beautiful, fire-safe, future proof accommodation for thousands of students.
Due to years of underinvestment in resources and infrastructure, the building was in poor condition and had received an unfavourable Ofsted report. In response, an interim executive board was set up to manage the school and change its fortunes. Rockpanel Woods | Rockpanel Colours | Renovation
In Valburg (The Netherlands), a village of under 2000 inhabitants, a brand new multifunctional centre was built. The centre, named ‘t Knooppunt, is quite large and could easily fit in an urban environment. By using an ingenious pattern of four Rockpanel Woods designs for the cladding, alternating with black lines, the architects managed to make it fit perfectly into its surroundings.
