Metal facades are widespread, especially in contemporary architecture, and are suitable for both private homes and commercial buildings. Whether made of sheet metal, aluminum or steel, the Facade cladding of metal is characterized by a long shelf life, enormous resistance to weather conditions and a contemporary look. Thanks to developments in industry, any surface and shape can be produced without any problems. Today we present you a new design that has fascinated us.
The brilliant idea behind the metal facade cladding
The Square and Partners team sought inspiration in the neighborhood when they were commissioned to design a unique and creative facade for a house in London. Ivy leaves and clapboards were the two things that caught their attention.
Metal facade cladding ready after 3 years
The concept for the metal facade cladding was developed over a period of 3 years. The designers also worked closely with the Swiss specialist in steel and metal construction Tuchschmid. The ivy leaf elements were made from metal shingles and folded into the desired shape by hand. A total of 4080 aluminum sheets cover this house facade and imitate the different bronze tones and natural growth patterns of the ivy plants.
