Farris Bad Spa Hotel in Vestfold, Norway is mainly designed and built with local manpower and raw materials, and with great respect for both the local- and the global environment. The building itself gives an impression of transparency, and is a great ambassador of Nordic engineering, architecture and craftsmanship. Cladding is in Kebony Character.
Øystein Rognebakke, Halvorsen & Reine Architects: “The builders wanted as natural and environmentally safe building materials as possible, and thus it was natural to choose Kebony. Look, hardness and durability were also very important. We used Kebony in both the outdoor- and indoor cladding and had it special made for the indoor flooring".
