Elliott House, Student residences

Even the most traditional form can hide an innovative solution. This architectural solution achieves energy efficiency and preserves the supporting structures and interiors from weather conditions. In this project the use of GammaStone Natural Air panels in Stanton Moore Sandstone ensured the harmony of the building with respect to the architectural surroundings. All without sacrificing the care of the finishes and the use of original and effective aesthetic solutions for the entrance and for the windows.

GammaStone Natural Air

The 3D Reid studio chose GammaStone Natural Air panels for the exterior cladding of the Elliott House student residence. Taking into account the area in which the building would be located, we opted for a natural stone that respected the surrounding environment: the Stanton Moore Sandstone.
