These are some of the largest high rise residential buildings in Europe, Axis were tasked with designing, manufacturing, supplying and installing a bespoke internal façade to 4 concierge areas, the bespoke design was to meet the fit out architects concept and vision.

Product: Axis Bespoke anodized and polyester powder coated aluminium Development of unique perforated acoustic cladding solutions to concierge areas of 4no multi storey residential buildings.

The company sought to develop a unique solution to integrate cassette panels with a 6mm thick perimetre surround to create rain screen features around the lift shaft and concierge areas. The fixing mechanisms to both hang the panels and achieve the precision tolerances demanded by the high-end nature of the building resulted in there being no readily available or deducible system for the company to deploy. Therefore, the company bespoke developed an advanced system of ‘T’ extrusions that could interface between the rain screens and the masonry walls. Furthermore, the details were designed to emulate the 6mm formwork of the panel surrounds. Significant uncertainty was encountered in achieving both the tolerances associated with the seamless junctures and also attaining the acoustic properties desired.
