McGill University - Facade
A modern wire mesh facade in the heart of old downtown Montreal.
Located amidst the Old Town, the EGLA-TWIN façade adds 21st century design to this beautiful part of Montreal. Several architectural wire cloth panels, each as a three part unit, cover the different levels of the building. Sun protection is combined with adequate transparency. The W.S. Tyler tensioning system using flat tension profiles and clevis screws ensures an optimum tension.
The cascade shaped façade marks the building: Rather than in a laminar looking assembly, the panels are arranged in staggered form creating an unique view when driving up or down the hill.
Elements made from the same specification, EGLA-TWIN 4313, have been used for the interior design of the building: So in the staircases.
