Ventilated facade is a system of cladding vvhere the facade cover, stone in this case, is fixed to the special substructure at a certain distance from the substructure walls. The system has its structural compnent which is formed out of aluminium elements which support the facade panels and the facade cover consisting of aluminium rails and stone panels. Designed as a separate, non- structural item, provides certain architectural freedom of expres- sion in the designe of the facade forms and aesthetics.
Space behind the facade panel becomes useful design object since some of the building services can be “hidden” inside. Ventilating facade is particularly important for its thermal insulation capabili- ties.
