Whether or not you’re into the latest developments in roof insulation and waterproofing, CLUB EXPERT is definitely worth a visit as the building itself – designed by architectural firm Asymmetric Architectes Associés – is a real eye-catcher. On top of the ‘show roof’ you will find different types of roof covering, including a green roof, different types of solar panels and a roof terrace.
