Sustainable Architecture

Ventilated Facade: NEOLITH速 STRATA ARGENTUM & NERO ZIMBABWE I Lake Huron Residential Project in Canada I Designed by SAOTA Architecture & Design I Photography: Greg van Riel

Neolith速 is an architectural skin that offers the most efficient solutions for the most demanding of architectural projects.

Neolith速 ventilated facades also provide continuous insulation and block direct solar radiation for considerable energy savings.

Resistant to stains and changes in temperature, Neolith速 is produced with 100% natural raw materials which guarantees it will remain unaltered over time.

It also gives architects real design freedom due to the unlimited possibilities and capacity to resemble all-natural materials like stone, wood and metal while maintaining a perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality.

The large format reduces waste and completion times.
