volvo showroomFor the Volvo Retail Experience, car manufacturer Volvo has developed a new concept for their showrooms, which will be carried through universally. A warm, Scandinavian, open design for offices and meeting rooms. The showrooms are above all light and the maintenance areas open. In these areas the "customer experience" is central, and for the ceilings in several of these areas a Derako solid wooden grill and linear system were chosen.


zwarthout gevelThe Derako façade system has been on the market for some time now and has been used successfully for various projects. Recently the system was also made available with the characteristic Zwarthout "Shodoshima". The slats' entirely hidden assembly method makes the system not only unique but also ensures reduction in building costs. In addition, the system is C2C certified and contributes directly to obtaining BREEAM and LEED credits.


stadskantoor venloThe recently completed council offices in Venlo were designed according to the principles of the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) philosophy, in which there is a positive influence on human health and the environment. The new council offices contain office space, a plaza, a public hall with an exhibition area and several meeting rooms. Several areas were provided with the C2C certified Derako durable Accoya wood grill ceiling system.


duurzaam plafondThe Derako ceiling and wall systems are available in a large variety of durable woods and also in bamboo. With the three variants of the linear system and several grill versions, there is always a form of implementation that provides the desired appearance in a new project or renovation project. All Derako systems are Cradle to Cradle® certified and contribute to obtaining BREEAM and LEED credits.

Recently, an article has been published in the Dutch professional journal “Houtwereld” on the conceptual construction solution and the various materialization forms of the Derako façade system.


The article describes the solution of the Unidek SIPS system in combination with the Derako façade system. A complete façade system which provides not only a very good insulation and quick installation but also a finish which is really distinctive! The system is suitable for new construction and renovation projects.
