INVOLUCRO A CELLULE

Domus - - RASSEGNA - Foc­chi FOC­CHI www.foc­chi.it

The cladding for an of­fice build­ing at 6 Pan­cras Square has been de­signed in a way that weaves to­gether clay and metal. The prin­ci­pal el­e­ment con­sists of a ribbed struc­ture in ter­ra­cotta with pro­ject­ing fins up to 34 m high. The cel­lu­lar cladding sys­tem has en­abled the per­fect con­trol of the pro­duc­tion tol­er­ances of these ter­ra­cotta col­umns, with 55,000 spe­cially-made ex­truded, cor­ru­gated tiles. The façade sys­tem has trans­formed a tra­di­tion­ally nat­u­ral ma­te­rial like clay into a highly-so­phis­ti­cated and un­usual cladding.
