The development consolidates cement and a wooden structure. The divider between the carport and the house gives a cushion toward the north. It is fabricated of RTH 85 squares made of 15cm thick breeze-pieces joining 8cm of protection within and 8cm breeze-obstructs all things considered. The opposite bordering divider has been laid with obvious, curved joints keeping in mind the end goal to demonstrate the “modénature” forms and help of the development.
The wooden system made out of 120/45mm boards has 120mm rock fleece protection on the inside, 8mm wood fiber protection on the outside and is clad in unpainted Douglas Fir which will climate with time. A defensive film which forestalls buildup covers the inside to which plasterboard is fitted utilizing wooden sections which lessens response to metal segments and minimizes any attractive field.
