Detached House

Spain


Residential HIGARSYSTEM, S.L.

This detached house is newly constructed in the province of Barcelona. A modern image, with a minimalist and bright interior, this is a project that not only meets the requirements of CTE, but also has some finished care. To provide the correct thermal insulation to the facade, a Placotherm® system has been chosen. Part of the materials used in the work have been Glasroc® X, and BA and PPM plasterboard according to the requirements. The difficulty implicit in the design of the project must be highlighted in the work, with a large number of curves both in partitions and ceilings, as in the decoration on the ceilings that at the same time serves to hide the indirect lighting, with an excellent final finish in all cases.

Key Achievements

  • Placotherm® V as support of new finishing: airless metallised paint.
  • Architecture and functionality through to the curved partition design in order to make daily life easier.
  • Overcoming of the performance beyond regulatory requirements.
  • Perfect finishing with indirect lights and different shapes and volumes.
  • Close work between installer, owner and design team give the possibility to participate with plasterboard facade solutions on a relevant project.

Key Challenges

-New finishing on Placotherm® V facade using airless metallised paint.
-Development of different outdoor curved shapes of the façade.
-Design and installation of external furniture with Placotherm® V façade (streetlight and barbecue)
-Installation of curved shapes on indoor walls and ceilings.
