Fjarilen is a unique apartment building, in the Swedish town of Uppsala, that has been shortlisted for the Swedish Steel Building Award 2017 (Stalbyggnadspriset 2017).

 

Rahel Belatchew designed a vertical panel façade and a Swedish villa deep and high vaulted ceiling inspired roof. With a goal to have a low impact on the environment, GreenCoat PLX Pro BT was the ideal solution. GreenCoat PLX Pro BT reduces the environmental footprint significantly and provides the one material for both the roof and façade in the same colour giving the desired monochrome effect.

Installation went smoothly as GreenCoat PLX Pro BT is scratch, corrosion and UV radiation resistant giving a clean look that didn’t buckle or deform.
