Retirement Home in the Arctic Circle

Due to the remote location of Kautokeino above the Arctic Circle, the care home is exposed to extreme weather conditions with temperatures lower than -40°C over the winter months. As such, the façade of the care home required a material that will withstand harsh conditions. Kebony proved to be the perfect material for this project.

Andrea Bronzini, Product Manager and Sales Director at Q-Haus commented, ‘The Kautokeino Home Care building is the first project in which Kebony has been used by our factory. We are extremely pleased with the final result. The natural look and feel of Kebony is a perfect fit for ecological buildings, especially for important objects such as this large passive house in Kautokeino.’
