MELBOURNE / AUSTRALIA
This residential project in Melbourne, designed by architects Wood Marsh comprises of 300m2 bowl-shaped, doubly-curved roof cladding including more than 1800 diamond shaped zinc panels in more than 300 different shapes and sizes.
The large amount of parts required a prefabricated solution. Each panel had to be cut and folded from flat sheet material and come together on site like a puzzle with tolerances of less than 2.0 mm. The sub-construction is made from flat Plywood sheet material that could be deformed on site to accommodate the geometrically complex roof cladding surface.
Rationalizing the design pattern and minimizing the number of unique parts was a crucial part of the process as well as developing a system for organizing and labeling all pieces in consideration of the entire fabrication and installation process…To know more about this amazing project, click here.
