What a beautiful braided composite facade on the Eemsmond building. Renovation of a former building (1969) for the pavement department of the Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management. During the renovation, Raficlad® façade panels were installed in the form of a braiding as a front cladding.
In order to make the braid possible, black anodized aluminum frames have been developed with which the panels are fixed in a curved manner. Nice detail is that the optically braided panels also serve as a sunblind.
The façade panels are equipped with chameleon foil, which changes color depending on the viewing angle. Because the panels are mounted in a curvature on the façade with the help of the aforementioned frames, the braid always shows different colors.
