Accoya Wood used for two iconic Louis Vuitton Designs

Latin America

Cancun, Mexico

Cancun, Mexico

The first Louis Vuitton store to use Accoya wood for the external façade is located in Cancun, Mexico.

The design was created by Louis Vuitton architects, Jose-Carlos Valdivia de Los Ríos and Gustavo Carmona.

Accoya out-performs even the most durable tropical hardwood cladding. By combining superior stability and durability with the beauty of natural wood, the architects have achieved the desired look whilst knowing it will perform for years to come. Not to mention Accoya’s world-leading sustainability credentials.

Louis Vuitton designers have selected Accoya, for the brand’s second store in Latin America.

The prestigious clothing and accessories store, located in Santiago, Chile, was designed by Louis Vuitton architect, Jose-Carlos Valdivia de Los Ríos and Gustavo Carmona, a Mexican architect who lead the Materia-Arquitectónica study.

Accoya has been selected for the façade of the building and has been designed to recreate Louis Vuitton’s famous quatrefoil branding which adorns many of the company’s luxury products.

Recreating this design in wood would be a challenge for most products. However Accoya’s unique modification process made this challenging remit achievable. The façade also had to meet the high standard of quality associated with the brand and be delivered to the highest levels of aesthetic finish. The geographical location of the store also posed further obstacles for the team, with Santiago prone to humid conditions within the summer months.

The finished building is impressive and the Accoya façade is covered with our guarantee against rot and decay for 50 years for exterior use above ground, making it perfect for a demanding outdoor application and location such as this.
