Australian architect BVN has been busy at Coffs Harbour on the coast north of Sydney, renovating the city’s library, museum and gallery and council office to give it more seafront sex appeal. To create the facade, it looked to Spanish ceramics firm Cerámica Mayor, whose Tempio glazed extruded ceramic ventilated facade panels in Green Aberdeen not only give it a distinctive, almost deco look, but are highly resistant to more challenging coastal conditions. The renovation will see the facility better placed to serve both locals and tourists visiting the picturesque town.
