This sculptural facade also doubles as an air-cleaning cladding. The tiles are produced by Elegant Embellishments (called the Prosolve 370e). They are lightweight, thermoformed plastic tiles coated in powdered, photocatalytic titanium dioxide (TiO2) which scrubs pollution from the air. #facade #material #pollution
The expansion of Hayes Primary School in Croydon has transformed the whole structure of the school and its learning environments. The expansion has enabled the number of pupils to be increased from 315 to 420. A new aluminium screen was constructed to the front and side elevations. The screen’s purpose is to reflect the canopies of the mature trees surrounding the site and, in turn, reduce the apparent visual mass of the building.
