Equitone fuses nature and nostalgia at Austrian festival hall

A fibre cement EQUITONE facade on The Festival Hall in Erl, Austria, has created an architectural fusion between the sites impressive mountainous setting and neighbouring historical building.

The lightweight yet strong properties of the EQUITONE facade, which allow the creation of complex, geometric forms, enabled the architects, Delugan Meissl Associated Architects, to create an angular design that remained sympathetic with the topological landscape.

Aside from the material’s geometric possibilities, the Charcoal coloured EQUITONE material complemented the existing historic white coloured building on site. The material allows the texture of the fibre cement to show through and its tactile, smooth surface further accentuated the symbiotic relationship between the two buildings.

EQUITONE is a sustainable and low maintenance exterior rainscreen facade material that combines excellent aesthetics with durability and impact resistance. It is available in a wide range of colours and finishes, including an anti-graffiti coating.

As well as having excellent environment credentials, an EQUITONE facade evokes the unique nature of fibre cement – a mineral composite material that has the physical and aesthetic properties to bring inspirational buildings to life.
