Strikotherm COMFORT - Keramische steenstrips
BGI Afbouw & Stucadoors Volendam BV
These 1969 apartments have been completely renovated. In his design, architect Hans Wagner faced the creative challenge of reviving the monotonous appearance of the long buildings.
Important goals of this renovation were energy saving, an increase in energy label E/F to B/C and improvement of the living enjoyment of the tenants. Based on this, it was decided to completely insulate the building. From an urban planning point of view, the architect preferred not to go for the common solution of insulation boards in combination with stucco, but rather to choose Strikotherm COMFORT - Ceramic brick slips.
The top layer consists of mineral brick slips, tailored to the buildings physical and thermal properties of the Strikotherm external wall insulation system. These products are resistant to changing weather conditions and higher demands on environments where heavier façade loads can be expected. This system has a long service life and a low maintenance character.
The complete renovation was completed while the flat was occupied, appreciation for the resilience of the residents should not be left unmentioned here!
