RMIG Gives The Big Picture To New Music Building At Danish School

A new music studies building at Skansevejens School in Denmark incorporates a unique façade, which uses precision perforated steel from RMIG to depict large photographic quality images of children singing, dancing and playing musical instruments.

Designed by leading Danish architects and consultants Kærsgaard & Andersen and located at Nørresundby in the Aalborg region of Demark, the interior of the new 200m2 music facility incorporates well-equipped rehearsal rooms, classrooms and dance areas to provide a dedicated teaching space with a clear focus on music.

When designing the building, Kærsgaard & Andersen wanted to expand the teaching potential into the playground area in front of the new music department, making it into a ‘third music room’ where concerts, plays and other artistic performances could be held in front of the music inspired perforated façade.

RMIG worked closely with the architects when developing the design, to create the complex pattern of perforations needed to render the images accurately on the cladding, which was manufactured using a series of 2.0mm thick hot dip galvanised mild steel panels.

The original images, which were selected by the architects were scanned and processed using special software at RMIG to create a unique perforation programme that generated the detailed punch sequence.

RMIG produced all of the images on the 6.0 metre high by 10 metre wide façade by using circular perforations ranging in diameter from 8.0mm to 20.0mm. Each of the 32 panels that make up the design was produced in sequence so that when installed, they would combine to make the eye-catching exterior.

To ensure the images were clearly defined and easy to see, the perforated panels were mounted in front of a black background to create the effect of viewing a large monochrome image.

RMIG project consultant, Lina Riis Husballe, explained: “We developed the technology for creating images using perforation some time ago and we’ve already undertaken a number of projects in the commercial, housing and public sector where images have been used to provide an aesthetic exterior to a range of buildings.”

She added: “The feature that is most interesting about the Skansevejens School project is that the images are not only used in an educational environment to give a stylish exterior, but they also represent the primary purpose of the building as well as recognising that it is designed for children.”

RMIG has 15 offices in 13 countries and provides precision engineered perforated solutions across the globe to meet the needs of a range of business sectors and industry groups.
