A NURSERY BLOSSOMS IN COLOURFUL DESIGN
In 2014, the nursery at Wilhelminenspital in the North of Vienna was built as a low energy construction and in accordance with the latest ecological criteria.
1,700 m2 of floor space were used to create six group rooms on two floors and an extensive landscaped area that covers approx. 2,000 m2 and provides a lot of open space to play. The creation of the façade incorporated the subjects “child“ and “green”, resulting in individualised perforated metal sheets made of galvanised steel in an attractive flower design which are harmoniously integrated into the environment. The project demonstrates the possibilities for talented and trained graphic designers in the production of high-tech perforated metal sheets. The cooperation with a reliable supplier ensures a top result and sustained customer satisfaction.
PERFORATED METAL SHEET – a new take on a classic
Perforated metal sheets have been produced in Europe since the late 19th century. In the past, perforated metal sheets were mainly used as sieve and filter elements and as protective plates in industry and machine construction. Creative designers and Western European product experts found new applications for the functional metal sheet – in the form of innovative designs for façade construction. Perforated metal sheets are popular for visual protection of façades in modern residential, hotel and office complexes and are often used for staircases and balconies. Nevertheless, perforated metal sheet has retained its practical character in the design sector and is also used as sound insulation in building construction. Advantages, applications robust material, combines functionality with attractive looks, façade design in transparent look, to visual protection, staircase and balcony railings, suspended metal ceilings, ventilation technology, insect screens in residential buildings, sound insulation.
