In Zwijndrecht (The Netherlands), you can find an impressive apartment building, clad with Rockpanel Woods. The architects of AKM-REALES used a variety of Woods designs and dimensions for this building called ‘HAUT’, thus creating a sleek modern facade with the warmth of wood. 

The remarkable complex was designed and built by project development agency AKM-REALESCo-owner and architect Nico de Bruijn: “Initially, we thought of completely starting from scratch, but it turned out to be much simpler to use the existing building envelopeIn the end, we only increased the existing envelope by roughly one meter.”
