The brief for this project was to provide a visual screening device to the waste transfer station located adjacent to our client’s site.
The potential leasing of the site was considered at risk from the neighbouring activity which was clearly visible.
Team 2 Architects proposed a perforated metal clad visual screen parallel to the south – western boundary together with enhanced landscaping and the planting of three mature trees.
The proposed visual barrier is 4.5m high and divided into two segments of unequal lengths that are located at different heights that provide optimum screening for tenants located within the first floor offices. The origami inspired form creates visual interest and defines the boundary of the site and generally enhances the area. The perforated metal and colour palette reflect the industrial nature of its location and give the screen minimal reflections and very low maintenance requirements.
