External Sculptured Facade

The brand objective
  • The architect needed to create a contemporary, ‘friendly’ facade for the new North Wyndham Police Station (Tarneit). He wanted to use angles to avoid a box-like structure.
The technical challenge
  • To produce coloured acrylic sheets with no visible metal frame from the street side. Angles needed to be exact so the sheets butted together.
The solution
  • Apresto glued solid fittings onto the rear of the acrylic sheets, that slotted into the frame behind. Apresto’s refined gluing technique produced transparency at the glued interface.
