The building features System 17 curtain walling in capped and silicone pointed variants, as well as System 5-20 turn-only and System 4-20 casement windows.

The Space, the performing art, technology and innovation centre for the South Eastern Regional College campus in Bangor, Northern Ireland benefits from an iconic curved façade constructed using Metal Technology architectural aluminium systems.

The new build by OHMG is formed from two blocks connected by a glass atrium. The building features System 17 curtain walling in capped and silicone pointed variants, as well as System 5-20 turn-only and System 4-20 casement windows.

System 17 was the ideal choice for The Space building as it offered the designer the design flexibility to create the curved aesthetic together with high-performance thermal efficiency and weathering.

Window systems from Metal Technology all deliver exceptional performance, thermal and security and blended seamlessly into the overall design.

As a performing arts hub, acoustic performance was critical. A 300mm gap between interior glazing and the external façade created a noise buffer, enhanced by the installation of acoustic padding on glazed fixing to prevent noise transgression. In addition to achieving the acoustic specification, the building was given a Very Good BREEAM rating.
