Wood is a natural, ecological, recyclable material with excellent insulating properties, which also offers many technical and creative possibilities.
The choice of wood species is key to the performance and longevity of the façade. Sweet chestnut wood has two important properties to consider: natural durability and dimensional stability.
The thermal inertia of wood (the ability to store incoming thermal energy, conserve it and release it progressively) makes it possible to regulate the temperature inside buildings, and to save energy by reducing the need for cooling and heating.
A wooden facade can be left natural, in which case the wood will be progressively greyed due to UV oxidation until it reaches silver grey (only valid for durable natural woods such as sweet chestnut) or a finish (lasur or oil) can be applied.
