“Beith Street” project involved the manufacturing of more than 2.000 panels for the ventilated facade of a new building inside the complex of “West Village”, a student residence located a few hundred meters from the University of Glasgow.
Natural GAMMASTONE AIR enabled the designer to create a modern and energy efficient building in perfect harmony with the surrounding architectural environment and the Scottish urban landscape. The adoption of the ventilated facade is very effective in counteracting the high humidity rate of the local weather and, moreover, the usage of local stone facilitated the inclusion of the new building in the old complex without preventing innovation, also from the point of view of design.
The flexibility and the ease of installation of GAMMASTONE AIR made possible the installation of a curved facade due to the relatively small size of the individual panels.
