McGill University - Facade
A modern wire mesh facade in the heart of old downtown Montreal.
Located amidst the Old Town, the EGLA-TWIN façade adds 21st century design to this beautiful part of Montreal. Several architectural wire cloth panels, each as a three part unit, cover the different levels of the building. Sun protection is combined with adequate transparency. The HAVER & BOECKER tensioning system using flat tension profiles and clevis screws ensures an optimum tension.
The cascade shaped façade marks the building: Rather than in a laminar looking assembly, the panels are arranged in staggered form creating an unique view when driving up or down the hill.
Elements made from the same specification, EGLA-TWIN 4313, have been used for the interior design of the building: So in the staircases.
