At 98 metres tall, the state-of-the-art Portomaso Business Tower is one of the country’s most iconic buildings. Opened in 2001, it is spread over 23 floors. Halmann Vella supplied and installed a ventilated façade in NBK Terracotta cladding. In 2018, an extension to the tower is being finalised. Halmann Vella has also supplied and installed NBK Architectural Terracotta for this project. The project also includes the NBK TERRART Baguette System, ceramic pipes with square, circular or oblong cross-sections which can also be made as curved elements or as double baguettes. This flexible product is mainly used to cover window areas or for an “open” façade.
