AZAL
PROJECT

The challenge was to make a building intended to house a nursery appear like a hedge on the horizon, with the intention of creating a parallel with nature. Thus, after various trials and tests, we carried out the final design of the panel, developing an innovative ventilated facade system. " “The knowledge and in-depth study of a product, of its manufacturing processes and of its possibilities of creating systems and, more than this, the involvement and attention of the professional in the concerns of the project in its broadest sense (aesthetic, utilitarian, behavioural), have enabled us to create complicity that has gone beyond the specific solutions for a particular building”, says Teresa Batlle
, project designer along with Felipe Pich Aguilera.

The possibility of applying a first phase of the research in a nursery led to the development of a wall system in which a detailed analysis of natural skins was made, seeking the ideal shape, size and texture, to create an enclosure to fit the space, creating structural elements with organic forms of a continuous nature

. The result was a hexagonal panel, combined with the texture of an inner pentagon in bas relief, whose placement allows many and varied composition and design possibilities. The play of light on the piece achieves a surface that changes throughout the day. The colours chosen for the facade piece, and its final placement, allowed the nursery to look like a mass of vegetation rather than a building.

"The idea was to give the building an organic shape, the first inspiration came from nature, the sea, fish scales.. "

CA L'ANITA
PROJECT

Customization and Tribute
Located in the historic centre of Roses, the former “Estanco de la Punta” building houses the sociocultural equipment by request of the previous owner, who gave it to the city council with this condition.

For the cladding of the building, polymer concrete panels were chosen, achieving a very special and customized finish. We wished to pay tribute to Anna Marés, the former owner, and therefore installed perforated panels which, by the combination of holes, form geometric figures with the same pattern as the original mosaic that covered the floor. In the installation, great care has been taken to place each piece correctly to allow the final pattern to be viewed properly

24 different panels were designed to make the mosaic. The aim was to place all the emphasis on the history of the site where the new building stands and bear witness to the former existence of the popular Estanco de la Punta de Anita.

The project has applied the latest innovations in building systems, which seek more sustainable and environmentally friendly models. Work has been done in accordance with the standards of the LEED Certification, which selects materials and techniques from among those having less impact on the environment in terms of pollution and consumption of non-renewable resources, taking into account the manufacturing process, assembling, maintenance and recycling, and considering aspects such as solar radiation and energy consumption

"The first idea comes from the original tile, recreates the drawing and the technical team had to prepare 24 different panels to achieve the ultimate goal."

Customized Project with drawn pane

  • Olèrdola (Catalunya-Spain)

OLERDOLA
PROJECT

Educational institution located in the Alt Penedés region, Barcelona, surrounded by vineyards.

The ULMA Architectural Solutions project team in collaboration with the architect, Gustau Gili, developed a panel with customized colour and texture.

Colour To obtain the colour resembling the appearance of the vineyard, vine leaves were collected from the fields and sent to the factory to achieve the exact shade.

DESIGN As for the design of the texture, this was based on a sketch made by the architect, and was given relief and depth to achieve the desired texture.

" “The willingness to customize, the technical assistance and the collaboration with the ULMA team in the project were essential in developing the final product”" GUSTAU GILI GALFETTI
Project Designers

"Inpired in nature, the vine leaf is dranw on the panel."

ULMA GROUP HEADQUATERS
PROJECT

To house the ULMA Group headquarters and the UPTC Technology Centre we sought to design a building with its own identity and presence.

In this particular case, the customization comes from the horizontal fretwork texture sought by the project designers.

The facilities have an area of 6,500 m2 (2,500 m2of laboratory), where the Technology Centre for Packaging Innovation (ULMA PTC) operates, the division engaged in R&D.

KEY SUBJECT
The continuity of the panels throughout the façade was achieved by designing the matching of the fretwork so that it matched the height of the upper panel where the panels met, having performed the cutting. The details of the installation were essential.

THE COLOUR
We wanted the elegance of black but not as a single colour but with the addition of grey shades in the form of droplets of various sizes.

" One of the ideas was the horizontality of the building, as a metaphor of the cooperative formula, where the political basis between partners is equality: one person, one vote.:
ONE PERSON, ONE VOTE" "To add personality , horizontality of the building was seek. It was achieved by the fretworked panel and the colour." Customized Project with fretworked panel  | ULM Project Designers

General Information
 

What is a Facade cladding system

The ventilated facade is a coating system of the building walls which leaves a ventilated chamber between the coating and the insulation. In European academic community, it is considered as the most efficient system for resolving the building’s insulation, eliminating the unwanted thermal bridges as well as the condensation problems and so achieving an excellent thermal-hydrometric behavior of the building.

With this system a continuous insulation can be achieved for the exterior of the building, protecting the interior sheet as well as the slab edges. In the ventilated chamber, due to the heating of the air layer of the intermediate space compared to the environment air, the so called "Stack Effect" is produced which generates a continuous ventilation in the chamber. Appropriately dimensioned the air entry and exit a constant evacuation of water vapor coming both from the interior as well as the exterior of the building is achieved, keeping the insulation dry and obtaining a better performance of the insulation and big savings in energy consumption. The Ventilated Façade, additionally to impact in the energy consumption savings of the building, eliminates the direct radiations or the bad weather on walls or slabs protecting them from the pathologies which affect buildings constructed with traditional systems.

The constructive system that we have developed in ULMA Architectural Solutions increases the useful surface of your project without the need of a protective sheet. Also, it constructs perfect planes allowing the correction of possible planar defects of the traditional and structural parameters. It is a safe and light system that distributes its loads on the resistance elements of the building, no on the protections.
