Thermopian, a plastic material typically used to insulate commercial roofs, is the chosen exterior cladding for the I House in Łódź, Poland. Designed by Polish firm moomoo Architects, the home’s shape is reminiscent of its neighbors, but with distinct modern flourishes. Thermopian was chosen as cladding due to its excellent thermal, acoustic, and insulating properties, and also because it can be manufactured in virtually any color. The front façade slopes up from one side to another and is partially obscured by an angled wall that allows the home to comply with strict local building codes requiring the front edge of a home to be parallel to the property edge. Construction of the I House is expected to finish within the next year.
