Architecture for breathtaking views: Foster+Partners has designed an exciting high-rise complex in London. Rieder, the experts for fiberglass-reinforced concrete, helped realize it.
fibreC facade panels are available in three standard sizes: 3100 x 1200, 2500 x 1200 and 3600 x 1200 mm. The large format panels are 13 mm thin and give architects plenty of scope in the design of individual facades. The panels can be produced in any requested dimensions up to the maximum standard size. Rieder offers cutting waste optimization for project-specific dimensions. The panels are dyed throughout with natural colour pigments and are available in 12 different colours and three surface textures - FE Ferro (sandblasted), FE Ferro Light (sandblasted at lower pressure) and MA Matt (brushed, smooth surface), with countless creative possibilities regarding colour, structure and form.
Mount Stephen Club Hotel, Montreal
The Mount Stephen Club, designed by architect William Titus Thomas, is a historical monument of Quebec. The historical heritage of this building lies in its architecture. The design approach for the rehabilitation of the old stock and new construction of the hotel Mount Stephen was for lemay architects therein to provide the historical part as a major backdrop in all its glory in the foreground.
The 12-storey hotel complex behind it was adapted to the needs of the
existing building in different ways. The symmetry and proportions take
into account both the urban context as well as the neo-classical
elements. The facade has been designed as a contrasting background to
the unique character of Mount Stephen to emphasize one more time. The
aim was to create an abstract pattern that is not in competition with
the neoclassical decorations of the historic building. Inspiration the
architect of tapestries, wallpaper and lace fabrics brought in Mount
The resulting unique design for the building envelope of the hotel has
been realized with concrete skin by Rieder. The 1,200 m2 facade panels
made of fibreC underline the intention to create an equally precious as a
shining object which simultaneously represents the expression of the
elegant historic building in the foreground, while itself contributing
to the allure of the iconic square. 1,000 concrete skin elements in a
cross shape and the different sizes of window openings provide a
spectacular luminous space pattern in the dark.
