Richmond College upon Thames | London
In Twickenham, London, a new educational building for the Richmond upon Thames College is built. Sorba has developed the contemporary façade for this new educational building. The façade is cladded with the aluminium composite material Alpolic. The entire building is designed by Atkins Architects and is built by main contractor ISG.
In this projects Sorba used the aluminium composite material Alpolic in two colours; the real anodized natural mill finish and the coated Alpolic in a bronze colour. For the most part, this building is cladded with the silver coloured Alpolic. This cladding is installed on third party steel frame structures. Despite the panels being extraordinarily big we managed to create tight and straight lines. The bronze coated panels are installed around the windows on the top floor of the building and create a nice feature.
