Metalline employ 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, part of the Vauxhall Nine Elms regeneration plan in South London.

Each balcony features a series of sophisticated aluminium soffits and fascia panels finished in gold anodised that 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 engineers 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 are no stranger to specialist architectural fabrication and are regularly called on to fabricate aluminium pressings, insulated panels and rainscreen facades, in interesting shapes and sizes for the external finishes of all types of buildings.

In association with Metalline (Services) Limited
