TELLING ARCHITECTURAL - ‘Telling & Argeton Are In A Shimmer’

An ‘iridescent’ glaze on a fluted Argeton tile won the contract for the supply of terracotta rainscreen cladding for the Legacy Emanuel Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon.

Telling Architectural has completed the supply of the Argeton tiles to Benson Industries’ plant in Tijuana Mexico where they are unitised into their aluminium curtainwall before transportation to site for crane installation in modular sections.

The international partnership is delivering an innovative, fast track and technical expertise to meet the programme demands of General Contractor Hoffman Construction.

Designed by ZGF Architects, the façade creates a vibrant aesthetic that shimmers in the sunlight with a profile of tile to soften the large unbroken areas of cladding. A combination of the precise joint and specially created large format tiles up to 1200mm in length create a modern and lightweight natural clay cladding suitable for all forms of modern architecture.

Benson Industries won the project in competition with site installed alternatives by applying their worldwide expertise in turnkey unitised façades. There was an exacting period of glaze development and die preparation for the tile spanning three months. Invaluable input during a visit by ZGF, Benson and Hoffmann to the Goerlitz production plant in Germany, enabled Argeton to apply their leading in-line glazing technology to meet the client’s aesthetic design intent within the parameters of extruded clay manufacturers.

The Legacy Emanuel project is the second largest project Telling Architectural has undertaken with Benson Industries having supplied Argeton to the Atlantic Terminal in New York in 2003.

Telling and Argeton continue their expansion as leading designers/manufacturer of affordable clay rainscreen cladding and sunscreen systems. Vertically hung tiles, new colours, textures and profiles are evolving under a continual development process aimed to meet the aspirations and demands of modern architecture and construction methods. Telling offers design and advice from conception to site installation and are actively involved in design along with the training of contractors.
