The Building of the Year – CASA A featured with Lunawood Themowood
We are happy to announce that CASA A villa, located in Guimarães Portugal has won the ArchDaily ‘Building of the Year Award 2020’ in the category “Best Applied Product”. The category shows the projects in which the architects did the best use of a product. That means, that the product was very important and well selected to make it a great project.
This masterpiece is designed by REM Arquitectos and its main volume is cladded with Lunawood Thermowood, assembled in a slanted order. The cladding is beautifully naturally weathered due to exposure to UV-light. Read more about the project. We are delighted for the cooperation with the architects and appreciate that they opened up their principles of design.
