Spanish tile manufacturer Levantina won a sustainability award for its contribution to The Green House Building in Budapest, Hungary, which is the first building in the country to achieve a platinum-level Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design certification. The project was headed by White Arkitekter AB and DPi design Kft., who used locally-sourced materials which had a low impact on the environment. The sustainability award was announced at April’s Coverings Installation & Design Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Tile of Spain reports that the ceramic tile used in the project offered a high degree of absorption to protect against harsh weather, sharp temperature changes and other extreme climate conditions. In addition to the sustainability, the tile is also durable; it resists bending, wear and UV radiation.
