We’re excited to talk facade design at @zakwof
A look back at this project for the EMCC Student Center that used our materials 😍
Mission College's (@go2missionsc
) beautiful Gillmor Center was designed and constructed to help Mission meet its master plan to lessen the school's eco-footprint. @lionakis_
architects was hired to incorporate sustainable design values that used state-of-the-art technologies. Roebbelen Contracting used CENTRIA Formawall Dimension Series insulated metal panels that were finished with Sherwin-Williams Fluropon Classic II coating in Platinum - offering both a sleek aesthetic to the facility’s exterior, as well as meeting the energy-efficiency goal.
Our Weave Art comes pre-assembled and ready to hang!
to this fun & colorful project that used our corrugated metal to add a unique look to the exterior & interior design! ❤️🌭💙
Our Laser Cut patterns aren’t just for interiors! They have a variety of exterior applications as well. To read more about our Laser Cut Collection check out the link in our bio!
The Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe is considered the world championship of horse racing. Every year on the first Sunday in October, it attracts 60,000 keen spectators to the ParisLongchamp racecourse in the prestigious 16th District of Paris. In 2011, world-renowned French architect Dominique Perrault won an international architecture competition to redesign the historic sporting venue. ⠀
Perrault’s vision was that the 525-foot grandstand would incorporate an elegant but minimalistic design, linking the racecourse’s past with present. When designing the grandstand’s facades, Perrault once again put his faith in the metal fabrics offered by GKD. For the grandstand, Perrault selected GKD’s golden stainless steel ESCALE 7x1.5 fabric. The fabric was chosen in part to follow Perrault’s key design principles of movement and transparency. The characteristics of GKD’s metal fabrics help provide the grandstand with a sense of visual lightness and subtle kinetics. Additionally, because of the spiral engineering of the fabric, the facades hold the ability to create interesting light effects throughout the seasons. ⠀

The architects at Halliday Fraser Munro worked closely with UK fabricator, Sotech Optima, to create the impressive exterior façade. The contracted windowsill panels create a three-dimensional effect against the remaining distending ACM. This fabrication technique creates an interesting prismatic effect where the panels change hue based on natural light and focal point, adding a new dimension to the façade.
