The exterior of a structure is the first indication that a building has something exciting to offer on the inside. The outward facade is the buildings face to the world, and the architect's desire to express what the interior workings of the building have to offer – both its business and layout. Just as we dress to impress for a meeting or even a date, a building is the same – the face of the building is the face of a company, and therefore has to offer the client something special. It is the first point of contact for workers, occupants, visitors and passersby. In an ever more competitive society, and social media dominating people’s lives… would you want someone bad mouthing your building? In today's society, reviews are king. Would you want someone to put off your practice, business, investment before they had even got to the door?

Modern facades are often made of polycarbonate sheets or panels, as a more cost effective alternative to glass. They also more malleable, so designs are able to be pushed further and allow the architect more scope. Polycarbonate sheeting also allows the sun to enter the building, thereby heating it – and sustainability is always key in a design these days.

The use of Solid surface facades

Solid surface facades can be used to a effect in the cladding of buildings. Because of the of the flexibility of the materials, the design possibilities are myriad. The designer and architect have access to limitless colors and form. Features like translucent colors and backlit panels can now, for the first time all be used in the cost-effective exterior cladding. And with the strength of the material used in these facades, the buildings are able to be kept looking their very best, as scuffs and smears are easily removed, which in turn reduces maintenance costs.

When updating using a facade to update a tired old building, the cladding acts two-fold: not only as a cost-effective means to bring a structure up to date, but also to act as a protective layer for the building inside, protecting the previous materials used from the elements. Graffiti ridden buildings no longer need to be an eye-sore, now that the new cladding has been added to a building – the graffiti can be easily removed with a pressure washer. And since the new color stability of new brands that are available on the market is so good, the facade won’t fade either.

Expanded Metal Mesh

Previous architectural styles, such as the brutalist movement, gave the urban landscape raw and rough contrete shells, in an effect to express the functionality and strength of the building and its work force inside. They reflected the stoic reliabilty that was needed at the time. Now, in the current area, the nature of the buildings are reflected in the ‘smart’ movement. In an fast moving world, with our IOS systems being constantly updated, and the brand new thing fast becoming yesterdays news, metal mesh facades are architectures answer to this.

Easily installed and with unlimited design possibilties, metal mesh facades are the future. Metal mesh facades are woven, or welded wire mesh made of steel or other tensile materials. With the holes either punched in, or part of the welding, they work to create a stunning visual structure, whilst maintaining airflow. The benefits to using the type of shell are numerous – the flexibility in apperance, the heat and solar protective nature of the steel – the mesh can even negate the need for air conditioning to be installed into a building – making it a considerably cost effective option!

Metal mesh facades offer the possibility of using ‘bi-directional’ screening – which means the facade allows air and light to flow in, creating a ‘play of light and shadow’, which means the building is offered a different character at night and during the day. And because of the colourways offered, these facades are able to either blend into their surroundings, or stand out. Often used in rural areas, the facades can match the trees, or a rusted effect will ensure the structure looks like it is part of the landscape. Equally vibrant colourways can be used to stunning effects in cityscapes. For instance, the Yanget House Hostel by Gresley Abas, a four-storey mixed use building in, uses a perforated aluminium screen designed by artist Rick Vermey to provide sunshading for its east-facing commercial tenancies, whilst creating a textured façade. According to the architects, the idea of the folded aluminium panel is carried through to the design of the street canopy, creating cohesion with the Victoria Street façade.

Benefits of Ventilated Façades & Rain Screens

As we all know the exterior of a building, its façade or envelop as it’s called, plays a massive role in how we see and use the building within. A building’s exterior also tells us what to expect when we get inside whilst also hinting on how the inside space will perform. With this in mind, building envelopes have gone through a massive upgrade in the past 30- years with Ventilated Facades & Rain Screens becoming the most prominent approaches. So, what are the Benefits of Ventilated Facades and Rain Screens? Why are they becoming so popular in modern commercial and now also domestic architecture? Within this following blog and information we hope to provide an explanation.

Building Envelope Appearance

First of all, with new construction techniques, styles and the ever changing demands on how we use and adapt a building; the Building Envelope Appearance has never been so important. If we harp back to the postmodern industrial era, the building’s exterior was used to enforce its and its owner’s status in the area; their importance and dominance.

These days the outside of the building and it’s envelop is used to denote its function and sophistication; whilst also demonstrating its importance in the area……Something’s will never change! However, with modern techniques allowing us to clad buildings with a wide variety of materials such as Aluminium, Expanded Metal Mesh, Corian, Porcelain tiles, Brick and Membrane Fabrics etc. in numerous shapes and sizes, the façade of a building has now been brought back into the architectural focal point. With such materials being used the modern appearance of the buildings envelope offers various simple yet striking subtle appearances.

This allows architects to develop designs which allow the building to stand out from the crowd without shouting……..”Look at me!” In other occasions, a façade or building exterior which does draw your attention in an ostentatious manner may be exactly what the architect and owners want. In either way, Ventilated Façades and Rain Screen options allow this whilst using similar construction and installation techniques. Furthermore with the use of integrated architectural lighting within the cladded envelope, such as Air-LUMM™ for Solid Surface Facades, or Air-Lit™ for Expanded Mesh Facades, architects can even have the best of both worlds. A subtle building design which at the flick of a switch turns into a media platform or a beacon, demanding and drawing your attention.

Why are Ventilated Façades so Good?

So Why are Ventilated Façades so Good? There are many reasons why Ventilated Exterior Cladding systems are used other than the amazing architectural designs which can be created by using them. However; the additional and often more important reasons Ventilated Facades and many Rain Screen solutions are specified and used include: Thermal Performance, Heat Defection, Reduced Energy Consumption and overall Building Acoustic Improvement. All these can be attributed to one single yet simple fact – By wrapping a building with an independent second skin you are isolating the inner construction from all forms of exterior environmental interaction; in essence, enveloping the core building with a protective outer defence. This second skin keeps the inner exterior walls of the building dry by protecting it from rain beating down and driving winds which push the moisture further into the buildings sub-structure.

The second skin forms an insulated cavity which blocks heat transference from outwards to inwards and from inwards to outwards, which significantly improves the overall buildings Thermal Properties whilst reducing operational costs. Furthermore the already improved acoustic capabilities can be significantly increased by adding acoustic based insulation within the cavity. And that’s not all – As a ventilated building façade can be constructed from various hardwearing materials, allowing the building to withstand more harsh environments and chemical based pollution attacks which modern city life results in, it can also be argued that a Façade Skin also reduces maintenance costs. So as you can see the financial and performance benefits such building envelops prove is enormous.

Building Exterior Transformations

Another of the benefits which Ventilated Façades & Rain Screens offer is the costs effective and relatively instant capability to transform a Building’s Exterior in a matter of weeks. Adding a Façade Skin to a building can be done on most pre-existing buildings or regeneration construction projects – they’re not just for new builds!

Regardless of the buildings existing construction – be it Brick, Glass, Concrete, Steel etc., an upgraded building envelop or façade Skin can be added, providing an enhanced and refreshed appearance whilst allowing the building to enjoy all the additional benefits as mentioned above. This is why most major regeneration projects include significant element of enhanced façade architecture using ventilated building envelop systems.
