Partially prefabricated rain screen in ZFC (030)
If the inner layer of the rain-screen façade at the Hotel AC was innovative, it was still more innovative the proposal for the neighboring office tower for the Zona Franca Consortium. Again the exterior image is a sober stone skin anchored over aluminum profiles; but on this occasion the inner layer made of boards over a steel framing was prefabricated, arriving to the site as panels. The total prefabrication of the ventilated façade is a difficult challenge mainly due to two issues: the air sealing of the inner layer; the perfect continuity and constant dimension of the joints, both vertical and horizontal.
