The Illueca Heath Centre, designed by Perman & Franco Architects’ Studio in Spain, stands out with a ventilated façade constructed from metal-effect ceramic tiles. While the color of the envelope changes depending upon the interplay between the light and the surface of the porcelain tile, the beautiful façade is also high-performance. It provides energy savings of up to 40% in an area with a climate characterized by high and low temperatures. The ventilated façade combines flat, ceramic tiles with volumetric ones. The tongue-and-grooved design of the tiles prevents water from entering the air chamber, avoiding problems that moisture can create.
