Novowood is a composite material (WPC), 70% made of wood natural fibers and 30% made of Polyethylene. It can be used for products of different shapes and colors, still maintaining the elegance of wood and the advantages of a not completely natural material.

Today, the living-comfort is one of the main elements on which architectural design focuses. Novowood composite wood louvers perform an important solar shielding action and strongly contribute to define the identity of the building. This residential building, designed by Architect Paolo Capellini, is located halfway between the city of Milan and Como Lake. The residence is characterized by balconies drawing horizontal bands - on the different floors and interrupted by vertical blades - created thanks to the “Infinity Plus 75” Novowood profiles. The installation pitch, with 75 mm at sight and 40 mm of vacuum, guarantees solar shading and, at the same time, visual permeability. The Copper Brown color highlights the contrast between the WPC and the white plaster.Read less
