Information

The Fixit renovation technique, including the use of a 30mm thick plaster layer of Fixit 222 Insulating Plaster, created a novel room climate based on its water-vapour permeability. The combined layers of the plaster system absorb excess humidity from the air and return it in a controlled way to the room, preventing the development of mildew

The protected building, dating from the early 19th century, was once used as a bakery. The building was converted to a multiple-family dwelling with painstaking attention given to maintaining the historical substance. Fixit 288 Calce Clima Thermo was applied to the façade to meet the requirements of the preservation authority for a thermal protective plaster coat.
