ACCOYA® sustainable wood is the true star of this building in terms of concept and aesthetic result. The objective of the architect Adolfo Moro Quintana was to respond to the commission to build this public health centre in the mountains of Álava with a proposal that would reach the highest possible levels of energy efficiency.
The ACCOYA® cladding is an exceedingly good contribution to this; its advantages for exteriors (resistant, ecological, rot-proof, zero-maintenance, with a 50-year written guarantee) run parallel to its natural elegance.
The result is an extremely special building, with a big personality thanks to its design and integration in the surrounding area, discreet and exceptional at the same time..
The versatility of ACCOYA® in this case inspired the architect to install untreated wooden panels, without planing, natural, without finishes. Another aesthetic decision made in this regard was to leave the marks of the battens used in the loading visible.
The result is an image that will change over time with a naturally elegant patina, as seen in these photos taken in 2017 and 2020.
