We are thrilled to announce that The Greenwich Peninsula Low Carbon Energy Centre has been listed as a finalist in the Architizer A+Awards.
The energy centre, which will pump hot water to the thousands of homes and businesses across the new Greenwich Peninsula, uses 1570sqm of Bespoke Optima FC Panels to create the flue tower element of the building, known as The Optic Cloak.
Formed from perforated 4mm J57s anodised natural silver, the mesmorising design was created using an aluminium sub-frame which supports triangular anodised rainscreen panels manufactured by Sotech. Each panel was perforated and folded at different angles to create complex geometric patterns that filter natural light in the day and integrated lighting at night to create different visual effects.
It was designed by renowned British artist Conrad Shawcross RA in collaboration with C.F Møller Architects.
CONGRATULATIONS to all involved, including Wintech who worked alongside the British artist Conrad Shawcross in collaboration with CF Moller Architects overseeing the design and engineering and monitoring of the work on site.
The Energy Centre has fallen into the category of Concepts – Plus-Architecture + Art 2018.
The Architizer A+Awards is the largest awards program focused on promoting and celebrating the year’s best architecture and products. Its mission is to nurture the appreciation of meaningful architecture in the world and champion its potential for a positive impact on everyday life.
