When concrete turns into metal

11 June 2018

This housing complex mixes metal and concrete coloured with gold, silver, bronze and copper metallic shades. The five metallic shades offer different perspectives according to sunlight.

For this project, architect Jean Bocabeille called upon Guard Industrie expertise and used ProtectGuard® Color High Jewellery. ProtectGuard® Color products colour the concrete’s skin whilst at the same time retaining the mineral look of the treated surface. Not only do these products give colour, they also protect against water, oil and even graffiti to preserve the beauty of the structure.
