Facade, self-cleaning, air-purifying, Neolith, Pureti, New York

Self-cleaning and Air-purifying Facade

570 Broome Street in New York is a 25-story residential tower with ground-floor commercial units. The design is the work of Manhattan-based architecture studio builtd. Due to its location at the busy Holland Tunnel, the client decided on a low-maintenance, durable, rear-ventilated facade. A total of 33,000 m2 of 12-mm-thick Neolith Jura limestone is installed on lightweight aluminium frames. The panels were produced in a special colour especially for the building. They are stain-, UV- and exhaust fume-resistant and also self-cleaning and air-purifying.
