Honext boards have a wide range of construction and design applications. What to do with them is entirely in your hands. You can find inspiration in these recent projects.
Sustainable lifestyle brand Neutrale wanted to revive its charming old retail location in downtown Madrid. To do so, it teamed up with estudio DIIR to imbue its store with the brand’s essence while respecting the original architecture of the space. HONEXT® and Neutrale shared the vision of rethinking waste as an untapped resource, so there was a perfect match. HONEXT® was used as cladding in the store’s main room to mark the line defined by the granite base of the façade. The panels unifies this first room and the store’s reception space and gives them a cosy feel that serves as a letter of introduction to the brand.
Construcía + Mecakim
Circular construction company Construcía turned to Honext to build acoustic islands that improved the office acoustics of electric car charger manufacturer Wallbox. Honext’s circular process met all the requirements of a Cradle to Cradle certified solution, allowing for healthy sound absorption with zero emissions and a look and feel that contributes to a pleasant work environment. Honext and Construcía collaborated to develop the ideal match for the project’s needs, delivering an acoustic conditioning solution in line with the sustainability standards of a brand like Wallbox.
Construcía + Hermanos Gómez
Torre d’Ara Coworking
Circular economy pioneer Construcía chose Honext to design a healthy co-working space at the seaside building of Torre d’Ara. Raw Honext boards were treated with renewably-sourced varnish and used as internal cladding and furniture finish, creating an office environment that promotes the user’s well-being while ensuring full recyclability. Honext was also used for the construction of phone booths, leveraging the boards’ superior sound absorption capabilities when compared to materials with similar applications.
Xavier Torrent + Intervento + Flisx
Más que abejas
Honext partnered with museography expert Intervento to create the information panels for More than bees, a Barcelona Botanical Garden temporary exhibit highlighting the essential role of insect pollinators. Honext boards were painted, varnished and digitally printed on to resemble honeycomb-like structures, being later bound together using wooden slats and fine nails. All treatments applied are eco-friendly and can be easily broken down to allow for the complete reusability of the material once the exhibit is over, in line with sustainability efforts to preserve wild bee populations.
European Green Bauhaus
Honext is participating in the European Green Bauhaus initiative, a sustainable construction and renovation programme combining energy demand reduction and renewable energy generation for residential and mixed-use buildings. The project will implement a unique combination of Near Zero-Energy Building technologies and methods, which will be deployed in three living labs covering various bioclimatic conditions: Sant Gil Eco Neighbourhood in Spain, Kultaranta Green Village in Finland and Da Vinci Labs in France. More information coming soon.
A new era for architects and designers is here. Enter Honext: the sustainable and healthy alternative to traditional partitioning and cladding materials.
