SPOTLIGHT ON... CASE STUDY ADVERTORIAL
Metalline employs the art of
Origami to solve design issues
A series of stunning balconies
finished in gold have added a
touch of luxury to the recently
completed “Residence” project,
which is part of the Vauxhall Nine Elms
regeneration plan in south London.
Each balcony features a series of
aluminium soffits and fascia panels,
that are finished in gold anodised, and
provide a 3D symmetry to the balconies
and building’s exterior.
The external finish to these balconies
was the brainchild of specialist metal
architectural fabricator Metalline, who
employed the art of Origami to develop
the intricate shapes required for each of
the soffits and fascia panels.
Called in by independent façade
engineer Wintech, Metalline’s
manufacturing team set about producing
a variety of routered and pressed folding
techniques to produce over 160 unique
fascias and soffits for the project.
Metalline is no stranger to specialist
architectural fabrication and is regularly
called on to fabricate aluminium
pressings, insulated panels and
rainscreen façades, in interesting shapes
and sizes for the external finishes of all
types of buildings.
