We are delighted to see the progress at the Distillery Building, part of Glassfields Bristol, a commercial office development on the site of the former Guardian Royal Exchange building in the city, where AWW architects recently specified our Vision 41 perforated aluminium screen with a powder coated finish. (Special thanks to Emma Wan, Associate Architect, for supplying the images).
The internal screening panels form part of a central vibrant heart space, replacing a traditional essential core and embodies the architect’s theme of connection and connectivity, encouraging interaction, shared ideas and relationships across floors with link bridges designed to connect people physically as well as metaphorically. Targeting BREEAM Excellent, EPC A and Fitwell accreditation, the building design seeks to promote occupier wellness, health and wellbeing throughout, with a clear focus on employee retention, performance and recruitment. The design of the interior is key to creating a flexible space and freedom of movement, cleverly blurring the lines between the exterior and interior environments through the implementation of light open atria and an abundance of ventilation.
Ash & Lacy’s architectural perforating capabilities lend themselves perfectly to perforated screen systems; not only can we create durable solutions which stand the test of time for building exteriors, we can perforate almost any pattern with the flexibility to specify open area, ventilation and shading requirements for internal applications like Glassfields.
