Swisspearl Architecture Magazine #28

The nearly 100-year-old Georgian-style brick building on a former medical campus in the United States’ District of Columbia is home to two private public schools with bilingual curriculums. A three-story wing added to the F-shaped floor plan gives it a contemporary look with a light, slightly reflective facade. The extension signals a new direction for the pre-existing, now complete building.

Fiber cement as a building material has a long and fascinating history with many ups and downs. To this day, our building material is used by many renowned architects, such as Herzog & de Meuron, Rafael Viñoly, Renzo Piano, and Morphosis. We are proud to play a leading  role in international markets and the fact that we are offering high-quality products the world over. In this issue, we will explain how our products travel from our production facility to the construction site. We are also presenting Vintago, a colored fiber cement board with a finely sanded surface. The resulting nuances of the colors create liveliness and authenticity on every surface. This year’s employee portrait takes us to a special political event in the Swiss canton of Glarus.
