Completed in the spring of 2020, studio thonik is, by any standard, in a league of its own. After only a few months, the building is already one of Amsterdam’s architectural landmarks.

Case Study - 209 Logements, Houilles

Houilles, France

In Houilles, a city located in the Yvelines département in the Paris metro area, the market square looks better than ever after the comprehensive renovation of a large apartment complex consisting of several tiered buildings. C3A Architecture, the architecture studio in charge of the project, decided to play with material interactions: white mineral stucco, zinc cladding and Trespa® Meteon® panels have been used side by side. The latter were chosen for their complementary, warm brown finish reminiscent of oxidised metal and their outstanding durability.

Tromsø, Norway’s northernmost city, is located on an island well above the Arctic Circle. Tromsø has a population of nearly 80,000, and at such an exceptionally high latitude, there are only two other cities of similar or larger size anywhere in the world. Therefore, when Knut Brandsberg-Dahl of Filter/Arkitekter in Oslo decided to take part in the competition for a new school building, he was aware that the project would be unusual in more than one way.

High above the city centre, halfway between the mountains and the sea, there is a building that nobody can fail to notice: ‘U Pavayún’ proudly showcases the principality’s official colours – white and red – in a way uniquely its own. By combining vivid colours inspired by nature with a bold and modern architectural concept, the building maximises the visual impact of its ventilated façades.

Targeted improvements transform an office building into a modern living environment

The transformation of an outdated office building into a new residential complex is no easy task. Nonetheless, D&M architects applied a simple but golden rule when asked to convert an office building on Wattbaan in Nieuwegein: ‘respect the existing building’. So the existing backbone remained intact. The final result looks new, fresh and stylish, due in no small measure to the use of Trespa® Meteon® Lumen façade panels.
