MEDITE® TRICOYA® EXTREME for life-sized Savalen gingerbread house

MEDITE® TRICOYA® EXTREME for life-sized Savalen gingerbread house

MEDITE SMARTPLY have provided their MEDITE TRYCOYA EXTREME for the outer decoration of a unique life-sized gingerbread house at The Savalen Hotel and Spa in the Norwegian mountains.

Seventy panels of 18mm thickness MTX were used, chosen for their moisture resistance, durability and stability.

The panels can be finished in a variety of colours and textures adding to the biscuit aesthetic of the structure.

MTX panels are known for their ability to retain their shape and consistency when faced with wet and temperature-changing conditions.

The product is guaranteed to last up to 50 years in external environments, and untreated, it is also recyclable when it is no longer useable.

It produces solid waste both during its manufacture and on site.

Savalen’s Managing Director Per Morten Hektoen: “"Our goal is to create a real adventure destination here, this was our first project with MTX, and it will be surely not the last."

The finished building is 366 square metres in size, 12 meters high, with three floors including a tower, where a lounge overlooks the picturesque winter scenes below.
