Boatiné coat (129)

What an amazing solution! Covering the façade with a EPDM membrane like a “boatiné coat”. So obvious but not really usual!! I only remember a similar situation, at the back facade of the Frei photography studio in Weil am Rhein by Herzog & de Meuron. They also used a waterproof membrane, in that occasion made of asphalt, for the cladding.
