Drinking water reservoir
It’s a challenge to make a functional building look sleek or modern, but the designers of this vast drinking water reservoir in Germany, have managed to do both with great panache, thanks to the use of KS600 Optimo insulated panels from Kingspan, made using hot-dip zinc-coated steel from Metal Trade Comax.

Fire-resistant aluminium cladding from Aluwall System, in a rainbow of bright colours, lends a fittingly childish appeal to Moscow’s new and innovative Federal Research Centre for Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Immunology. Primary colours and their complementary partners characterise the exterior and interior finishes of the blocks comprising this cheerful-looking hospital complex, each of which has been assigned its own, distinctive function.
