Addensbrooke’s Hospital

Addenbrooke’s Hospital Car Park – Cambridge Biomedical Campus The building is wrapped with a screen of continuous, twisted 5mm aluminium ribbons, that are silver anodized and subsequently polyester powder coated on one face in bright yellow. The effect is a woven basket-like structure on which light plays and models the texture of the façade. This surface provides weather protection and screening to the interior of the car park, while allowing glimpses of the surrounding countryside. Produced from 5mm 5000 Series Aluminium Spanwall manufactured these 4620mm long helix ribbons on our bespoke “Twister” that allow fabrication of up to 10mm Aluminium turned through 180° This prestigious project was recognised at the 2015 cutting-edge RIBA Regional Awards.
