Perforated brick for the outer layer of a drained facade (014)

With this project we want to exemplify the scarce use of materials with which HArquitectes resolve their architecture, and therefore their facades. In this occasion, only two materials: thermal insulation and perforated brick (gero). If in the interior wall, the structural support, the brick is arranged in a suitable way so as to resist the loads transmitted by the slab; in the outer wall, the same brick is arranged rotated showing its perforated surface, therefore, allowing the chamber between the two walls to be ventilated.
