INVOLUCRO A CELLULE
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.
