Most of the outside walls made of very dense apparent concrete were protected with the high performance impregnation ‘Faceal Oleo HD’ against oil-/fat- and water-based stains and contaminations. The photos show this outstanding building from the distance and a close-up of a treated and a not treated and therefore stained part of the façade.
