Impressionist Architectural Rift: Using Perforated Metal to Create a Pointillist, Pixelated Façade

Struggling to select a material for your new building façade? A perforated sheetmetal is sure to tickle your fancy.

Perforated metal is distinctive in that it simultaneously offers practicality and beauty. If you need a façade which is resistant to harsh weather conditions, assists with noise abatement, or allows for natural lighting, perforated metal can achieve this whilst holding aesthetic appeal at the same time.

A terrific example of a perforated metal façade that we have stumbled across is that of the ‘Casa Alta’ house in Mexico. Designed by AS/D Asociacion de Diseno and located on a steep slope within a 1,500 square metre plot with magnificent views to the valley, the main structure of this weekend house consists of a 6m by 6m module in three levels with just 108 square metres and a roof deck overlooking the valley.

The design of the ventilated facade is conceived with the idea of somehow printing an abstract image of a tree, just as if the house would camouflage with the many existing trees from the site.

The façade evolves from the idea of digital pointillism where the image of a tree is digitalised with the same technique of the impressionist paintings, where the user is able to see the full image from a distance but as one gets closer it becomes a constellation of pixels which gives a unique texture to the house. This is achieved with 232 Trespa panels from which 40% are perforated using CNC technology for the fabrication and precision and placed on an aluminium sub-structure.

Perforating a material is something to consider if you have a very specific and customised design in mind. Not only can we modify the appearance of the façade through different hole sizes, colours and patterns, we can adapt the functionality to your specifications by altering the level of light and noise that can be let through. Our turret punch and other state-of-the-art equipment coupled with our knowledgeable staff will ensure your façade is to your liking.

If you like the ‘Casa Alta’ and would like a similar façade (or any other perforated metal piece) for your home or workplace, please do not hesitate to contact us at Action Sheetmetal & Roofing by phoning 07 5564 8200, emailing us at orders@actionsheetmetal.com or online www.actionsheetmetal.com
