Why do we like the metal facade for a house in Barcleona?
Metal is a malleable, perforable, affordable material and to which you can almost any color.
As architects it allows us a great variety of options that combined with a ventilated facade system offers us great benefits.

Easily removable.
Normally delivered in pieces of 3m, 6m and up to 12m long and 1m wide with thicknesses from 2mm.
It means facades with greater uniformity and continuity since joints are minimized.
This also facilitates its handling and provides greater aesthetic and hygienic advantages.
Great variety of finishes from smooth and corrugated, to bright or matt, perforated or deformed …
Wide range of colors


What is the price €/m2 in Barcelona?

Wide variety of prices.
The most affordable façade is the pre-lacquered corrugated steel sheet that you can find from € 20/m2 (price only for material without installation or VAT).
From there there are endless options to reach the folded zinc and copper facades.
Copper in the rough is priced at almost € 8/kg …
