St.Cuthbert’s College – Auckland NZ
The forms and materials of the Performing Arts Centre at St Cuthbert’s College were inspired and influenced in part by the special nature of the site, which is fringed with large, mature trees.
Architectural practice Architectus designed the curved forms of the building – including bent glass windows – to create a more organic interface with the trees surrounding it.
To execute this design, Glasshape® worked closely with the architect to manufacture and supply bent toughened Grade A safety glass for the exterior windows. It also made and supplied 15mm (9/16″) thick bent glass balustrades for staircases in the building’s atrium.
