Linking Old And New Architecture

When the existing Hatton Garden building was refurbished and enlarged with a new adjacent six storey structure, ETFE foil pneumatic cushions provided the perfect link between old and new constructions. Air inflated pillows formed from three layers of transparent self cleansing ETFE membrane permit natural light to infuse the newly created atrium and adjoining jewellery workshops. Larger than standard silver dot fritting to the outer surface of the cushions was chosen by the Architects to compliment a theme throughout the building. Design and supply of the lightweight steel supporting structure was also included in Hightex’s package. Another application where Hightex’s position in creating tensile structures and fabric architecture in tensioned membranes such as PTFE, PVC, and ETFE is realised.
