ISOGARD™ HD

Firestone’s ISOGARD HD cover board is a 12.7 mm thick, high-density, closed-cell polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam core laminated on both sides to a mineral-coated fiberglass facer. When foot traffic on the roof is frequent, mineral wool insulation runs the risk of being crushed, or in the case of plastic foam insulation, the adhesion of the facer to the foam can be affected. ISOGARD HD spreads the load and improves the protection of the insulation boards underneath. It combines impact resistance, ease of installation, and is used as a recovery board over the existing roofing system, it is an excellent choice for refurbishment projects.   Why choose ISOGARD HD? Firestone’s ISOGARD HD has the highest thermal performance of any... Altro

La Petite Halle

Faced with global warming and increasingly demanding local regulations, the mindsets home owners are changing. They want to move into houses that respect the environment and are energy efficient without sacrificing architectural quality. French architect Jean-Marc Proche and property developer Karine Maury sought to develop passive housing built from a polystyrene/concrete formwork system. Three years ago, they embarked on the design and marketing of an eco-responsible neighborhood project. In 2018, a first program named “La Petite Halle” was set up 50 km north of Paris, in Luzarches.

Royal De Ree Holland

Dutch flower bulb company Royal De Ree Holland had plans to renovate their roof for some time, but the decision to install a photovoltaic system accelerated the project. The renovation involved their two locations in Lisserbroek (North Holland). From March to July 2019, a total of 33,000 m² of roof surface was insulated, covered with Firestone’s RubberGard EPDM waterproofing membrane and equipped with 11,000 m² of solar panels. Flower bulbs are treated in air-conditioned halls, so moisture infiltration and lack of proper insulation can have a harmful impact. A few years ago, there was a collapse on the roof due to water accumulation. In order to avoid a new collapse and following the decision to install solar panels, an ass... Altro

After-School Care Centre Waldorf School

The grounds of the Waldorf School in Prenzlauer Berg possess a unique urban positioning between socialist prefabricated structures, Wilhelminian style blocks and the green spaces of the Jewish cemetery. The school building, having undergone a spirited renovation process, is a 5-storey prefab building from the 1970s.The after-school care centre and later extensions were designed in a completely different style. The new centre docks on the school’s courtyard stretching towards the sports hall, providing the schoolyard with a structural back to the street and a clear centre. The projections and recesses create different outdoor areas for various uses. The buildings received green roofs inclined in different directions and, with the rising eave... Altro

Het Zwin Nature center

La riserva ornitologica e naturale "Het Zwin" è un'area naturale protetta tra le Fiandre e i Paesi Bassi. L'incarico comprendeva la riprogettazione del parco naturale esistente e la creazione di un nuovo centro visitatori.   L'autentico paesaggio marittimo con le sue dune di sabbia, le pianure fangose e le saline, modellato dalla brezza marina, è costituito principalmente da linee ondulate. All'interno di questo paesaggio ondulato gli architetti di COUSSÉE & GORIS hanno costruito volumi lineari astratti come ancoraggi nel paesaggio. Questi interventi architettonici consistono in una serie di linee parallele, che da un lato strutturano il paesaggio e dall'altro lo riparano come schermi di vento nella zona di Z... Altro
