Accoya Cladding Coastal Residential Project




Sustainability meets innovation

Sustainability meets innovation

The development of the Borkum offshore district marks a significant milestone in the use of sustainable building materials .

The collaboration between Borkum Hafen Immobilien GmbH and the visionary Delugan Meissl Associated Architects not only created a residential area, but also a pioneering symbol of environmentally friendly construction.

A key element of this innovative project is the use of Accoya wood for the facade slats , which are not only aesthetically pleasing but also an example of environmental sustainability and durability. Accoya wood’s unique resistance to extreme weather conditions and salty sea air underlines its value as a preferred material for maritime construction and confirms its suitability for the demanding climatic challenges of coastal locations .

This project serves as a stunning example of the possibilities that arise from combining innovative design and environmentally friendly materials , setting new standards for future construction projects.

The decision for Accoya

The decision for Accoya

Accoya wood was chosen for the offshore quarter’s façade louvers because it offers unsurpassed durability and environmental friendliness. Its exceptional resistance to Borkum’s harsh coastal weather makes it the ideal choice for outdoor use.

The Cradle-to-Cradle certification also underlines the commitment to sustainability, which is in line with Borkum’s goals to be emissions neutral by 2030.

Accoya wood, known for its low maintenance and durability , helps minimize the project’s environmental footprint and preserve the aesthetic quality of the architecture for decades.

The integration of Accoya wood into the design of the Borkum offshore district demonstrates how state-of-the-art construction technologies and sustainable materials can go hand in hand to not only meet the needs of residents, but also make a positive contribution to environmental protection .
