Award-winning facades: Celebrating the past and designing for the future


Award Winning Façades: Celebrating the past and designing for the future

How can a state-of-the art cultural institution and visitor centre assimilate its rich Georgian context? What is involved in the successful retrofit of a grade II listed 1970s factory? And how does a refurbished Victorian industrial complex emulate the original fenestration, while ensuring high levels of thermal performance and security? These questions and more were addressed in this AT Schüco webinar, where five of the winners of the 2023 Schüco Excellence Awards explored the thought processes that went into the design of their building facades. The event was chaired by Isabel Allen, and the speakers were Ben Heath, principal at Grimshaw; Tom McGlynn, associate at Niall McLaughlin Architects; Alastair Hall, partner at Hall McKnight; Jason Turner, associate director at tp bennett; and Trevor Morriss, principal at SPPARC.
