2019 S/Alon BMW Wallis Exhibition

At the 2019 S/Alon design fair, we were invited to take part in the development of the lighting installation wall for BMW Wallis. The team was commissioned to create a design for an aluminium foam panel wall decoration which could be backlit. Part of the brief was to hide all wall fixings and joints to create a truly unified fully seamless wall piece. During construction, we used screws to fix the Aluminium foam facade to the console-railing system. The flexibility of the console-railing system enabled us to easily adjust it to the interior wall dimensions. This allowed us to complete the installation in a limited time span. The desired lighting effect was achieved by the installation of RGB LED strip lights, which could later be modified t... More

Virovitica Biomass Power Station

Aluinvent LO & LO2 panels and sub-structure create the facade for this landmark Biomass Power Plant in Virovitica, Croatia. 1600 square metres of panels in a range of green shades  respond to the sustainable nature of the green energy produced by the facility. The design incorporates LO2 panels at strategic locations that allow light to penetrate, illuminating parts of the building’s interior. The LO2 panels simultaneously allow excess heat to escape through designated venting points whilst maintaining a constant unbroken facade. The use of Aluinvent’s recycled facade panels contributed to the facility being built in accordance with the Sustainable Development Policy of The Republic of Croatia and The EU. Caption... More

Workers’ Home Malpère

The project in Toulouse is divided into two units: The Adoma dormitory for young workers at the street and behind it a complex with twelve terraced houses for families.The Adoma complex consists of two blocks around a central core with communal areas and access zones. The second block is slightly recessed, creating a protected entrance area. The upper floor rests on slender columns. Thus the ground floor remains free and creates a connection to the surrounding green as well as roofed parking spaces for the residents.The individual mini-apartments are constructed as timber modules around a massive access core. The wood remains visible on the ceilings of the apartments and creates a warm, cosy atmosphere in the rooms. More

Living in the Arts and Cultural Quarter
