In 2015 we established a design scheme with the architects for a bespoke façade system on the newly constructed Battersea Dog’s Home in London.
Extensive consideration went into the aesthetics of the final scheme in order to promote the building’s sustainable aims. This included the use of glass solar modules, which not only generates renewable energy, but also allows sunlight to shine through between the individual cells.
The bespoke nature of these modules means that specialist clamps were needed, which run the full width of the module itself. A steel structure was designed to cantilever off the main roof, where the modules are fitted to create a light canopy over the walkway around the building.
