Durable and sustainable exterior cladding

The exterior cladding at the Neuhaus is Resysta, a durable and environmentally-friendly product that serves as a great alternative to wood. Unlike wood, it does not fade over time, absorb moisture, or allow pest infestations. It's fiber-reinforced hybrid material produced of approximately 60% rice husks, 22% common salt and 18% mineral oil. These are rapidly renewable materials and therefore will earn the project 0.5 LEED points in the Environmentally Preferable Products category.
