WINNER: TUBULAR CATEGORY

Complexity and precision

The recent world-class Menlyn Maine, Park Lane West project included a modern skylight manufactured from lightweight steel, which earned this project several awards. Boogertman + Partners Architects approached design build specialists, LEAF Structures, to assist with the specialised development for the Park Lane West atrium glass skylight, which also needed to address the following considerations:

  • Provide a single-source solution which includes the structure and cladding.
  • Maintain the architectural intent while improving transparency (using lighter steelwork and eliminating mullions).
  • Reduce interface details between different cladding materials.
  • Consider interior and exterior maintenance requirements.
  • Consider ease of installation.
