Winning combinations

Facade cladding combining different materials and finishes
Winning combinations

The other day my 3-year-old son surprised me by smearing his chorizo sandwich in yoghurt. And then he ate it. Imagine my face when I saw that combo... 

Even though he enjoyed his snack, I still think there are combinations that work and others that don’t. 

For instance, there’s a saying in fashion that you should never mix checks with stripes (although there are some designers who’ve tried to go against this rule, I’m still not convinced). 

And when it comes to facade cladding, combining materials, finishes and colours is a technique architects often use to design buildings. 

There is a wide variety of materials on the market, but Stoneo panels, unlike other options, are compatible with all other materials.

I’ll give you an example later, but first, let’s learn a bit more about Stoneo.

Stoneo is a resistant and sustainable material that gives the skin of buildings a natural, modern and stylish touch. 

If we focus on finishes, Stoneo is a great option due to its wide variety of textures: natural, dynamic or customised.

But you can also combine materials to give the building personality and character. 

Today we’ve got an example of just that for you: the National Police Station in Jerez de la Frontera, a two-storey building with more than 1,500 square metres of space.

Combination of materials and finishes

For this project several materials were used to clad the facade. And although matching the materials was complex, thanks to the technical advice provided it was possible to create a building made up of various technical solutions and finishes.


The slats are aluminium, the window surrounds are made of aluminium composite, the floor above the entrance portico is made of traditional grey concrete, and we supplied Stoneo panels in two colours and textures.

On the facade there are panels from the Feel (smooth texture) and Pure slate (texture with the natural appearance of stone) ranges, both in light shades that are almost white. 

The contrast of light and dark colours along with the different materials used creates a striking effect. You can see this for yourself in the pictures accompanying this post. 

Because when it comes to mixing, doing it with good taste and judgement is synonymous with a winning combination.

Not at all like mixing chorizo and yoghurt...
