For this noteworthy project, Airtec stone
offered the ideal solution. Both sleek to
look at, but also thermally-efficient and
waterproof, it had everything required.
Airtec stone provided a striking finish for athlete
accommodation for this high-rise block at the Olympic Village.
Each block was designed with a different finish and theme,
with the stone panels for this block providing subtle colour
impact against the plain stone.
This block has now been remodelled inside to create luxury
apartment accommodation as part of East Village, which will
provide a mix of low-cost and private residential housing,
within a community that will see a combination of offices,
shops, schools and a health centre.
Airtec stone offers a sleek
aesthetic to the exterior of
this noteworthy building,
as well as a number of
properties making it a
comfortable place to live. We
were thrilled to be involved
in the Olympic Village.
Howarth Tompkins were the architects for this project and
identified the many benefits of using Airtec stone. It has a
number of different design options and enables the client to
pick from a range of sizes, stones and shapes.
Lightweight and sophisticated, it can be fixed to the
substructure without any visible fixing elements. It can
also be installed overhead through the use of invisible
fixings. It is also weather-resistant and frost-resistant, with
fantastic thermal properties thanks to the use of mineral
wool insulation. It is also fire-resistant, which is especially
important in residential blocks.
