Maison de Repos Au R'Cwe du Vî Clotchi

Couillet, Belgium

Retirement homes are subject to very strict fire safety regulations. Timber façade cladding may not seem the most obvious choice, but thanks to the fire-retardant solutions for timber and panels from Lemahieu Fire Protection® more and more architects are deciding to use timber.

Architect: Etau Architects

Wood type: LDCwood® ThermoWood®  Pine

Durability class: 1

Year: 2019

Unique creation


Etau Architects used ThermoWood® pine from LDCwood for nursing home Couillet. It was treated with fire-retardant by Lemahieu Fire Protection® to achieve the required reaction to fire classification.


The combination of three different profiles creates a vertical interplay of lines on the façade.
