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.
Residential Building - Bollate (Milan)
A residential building in the heart of Milan hinterland. A brand new building integrated into the context but, at the same time, showing its strong identity. The building, designed by Architect Marco Andreoni, distinguishes by the use of different facade materials and by the use of overhanging volumes. The designers used 750 square meters of wall cladding in Novowood “Skin Prestige” staves, Wood color, and more than 1200 linear meters of “Infinity Plus 75” louvers profile…Read more

The latter create a screen with high architectural interest for the external spaces.Read less
