Rediscovering and tranforming
The structure, which sits in a prominent position alongside the very busy Hammersmith intersection, has undergone several schemes of modernisation since its construction more than fifty years ago.
Architects Woods Hardwick called on its considerable knowledge in retail to rediscover and revitalise the original Richard Seifert designed brutalist structure, bringing a contemporary relevance to both its exterior and interior. Their plan in transforming King’s Mall to provide a more vibrant and inviting retail experience included new double-height shop frontages, together with various retail space refurbishments and a new food mall.
Around 500m2 of 11mm thick Premium A2 range was installed at Kings Mall along with 300m2 of 9mm Premium for the soffits, all specified in warm, organic, Oleo colour, augmented with 50m2 of specialist StoVentec Glass in RAL 9005 black.
Premium offers true design freedom
The Rockpanel Premium segment represents the pinnacle of innovation in resilient external façade solutions, offering architects and specifiers complete freedom to push the boundaries of their creative design vision.
Rockpanel Business Manager, UK and Ireland, Ashley Wainwright, “Premium offers architects true design freedom. Its 11mm board, our thickest and most robust, is not only A2 classified and suitable for concealed fixing but, naturally, offers all the other advantages associated with Rockpanel.”
