Five fantastic façades

Five fantastic facades

A façade is one of the most important elements of any building design, providing a striking first impression and protecting the building from the environment. But façades don’t just have to be functional, as you can see from these fantastic designs:

Wuxi Vanke by Kengo Kuma and Associates

This intricate aluminium-moulded façade covers an art centre in Shanghai, with textured panels fanning out of the curved building.

A colourful design in Melbourne that showcases giant fragment-shaped panels in reds and greens – along with environmentally friendly perimeter planters, louvers, and solar panel shading.

Hostivar Golf Club by ADR

This striking façade layers of red-brown strips for a multi-textured look that adds extra height to the Czech golf club.

A nightclub in Japan by Tiffany Dahlen and Virginia Melnyk

Using innovative modelling techniques, this bold nightclub design incorporates several three-dimensional patterns in pastel shades.

Sheung Wan Hotel by Thomas Heatherwick

Our final façade on the list is a hotel skyscraper in Hong Kong, which makes the most of its white rectilinear design with a motif of stacked boxes cascading towards the ground.

These are just some our favourite façades – tweet us @AluK_Int with your own favourites.
