1:20 Façade Accent Testing
These images were created to decide the extents of Standing Seam Zinc within the Repurposed Sandstone Slips as well as to investigate how they would interact with the structural columns. The third test with the most zinc was chosen as it created the most layering and depth.
1:500 Elevation to Old Dumbarton Road
The façade is made mainly from stone slips formed from the existing on-site wall into which the new building embeds. Zinc Accents set within announce the programme within the wall sandstone. As the stone will match perfectly once weathered, the building should integrate with context as if it had always been there. In order to match the height datum of the existing wall, ceilings indoors have been raised to 4.5m which has resulted in better views to Benalder Bridge (the building’s physical connection in streetscape to Partick) from the Roofscape.
