Lightbox - Birkenhead
The project is for a new 20,000ft2 industrial development in Birkenhead. Sixtwo have proposed to creatively utilise key principle elements of the building. Polycarbonate cladding will provide a sense of transparency and illumination to the red oxide painted steel structure and space within. The concrete cladding panels to the base provides a solid plinth to the light cladding and transparent elements above. The entrance is articulated with a red oxide colour (relating to the frame) and a chamfered canopy and recess back to the entrance door to provide both relief and visual interest to the elevations. The entrance chamfer also address the vehicle access through the site, further emphasising the entrance.
