Woods Bagot Director and Global Health and Science Sector Leader Georgia Singleton said the significance of the work carried out within the walls of the building provided the conceptual inspiration for the façade design.
The building’s external, predominantly solid facade provides a protective layer akin to an animal’s skin, linking to the building’s purpose as a research space for the natural environment.
Featuring a series of external shroud-like elements that adapt and change as the facade wraps the building, the design has produced an organic aesthetic that is distinctive to the Biomedical Precinct. Inspired by the natural environment, the design references the movements of a butterfly. The facade utilised a mix of Mayor Tempio bespoke sun shades and standard tile.
Newly built school, located in New Zealand. It perfectly combines the natural red colour ventilated facade with large windows that fill the classrooms with light. The decision of using ceramic on this building provides a significant increase in the thermal and acoustic comfort. It also favours the passing of water, gas and electricity pipelines, an important detail when there are children around.
Works were carried out for more than one year to develop the special pieces for the University of Sydney. Oval sunscreens of 300 were created for the windows in the cafeteria area and another type of straight sunscreens were designed for the classroom areas. It is an impressive building, both for its star-shape plan and for its single-colour facade that has conferred it a great richness and volumetric, combining flat pieces and ceramic sunscreen tiles.
This rehabilitation project of the Taxi’s main offices is a clear example of the convenience and advantages of using a ventilated facade for this purpose.

Given the location and the environment of the project, from the beginning the architects were clear about the need to create a sustainable building, basic principles of energy-saving, eco-friendly materials and natural visual aesthetics. That’s why they chose to use the ceramic ventilated facade. For the advantages of using this system and for the nobility of the ceramic material.
The building also has an area with solar panels to supply the energy required for its operation.
La D Tower in Korea is a modern office building, located in the capital. The architects envisioned this as a construction set in which cubes are placed one on top of the other to make it higher.

A project was awarded in 2006 to build 619 social housings in an area known as Pradaviejo, in the city of Logroño, to the Japanese architect Toyo Ito.
Tempio was in charge of covering this emblematic building. The architect had in mind a piece of a specific colour and with a specific relief with waves. Many companies of the sector presented pieces for the project, although given the characteristics of our ceramic tiles and the excellent application of the vision of the piece to the reality of such, made the architect choose the Tempio facade.
Detached house located in Boadilla del Monte. The owners decided to install a ventilated facade because of the saving of energy of this system. The distribution and size of the pieces were highly considered for this project, as due to its shape, it had many endings and offcuts of pieces.
