Curving the fabric mesh facade
Updated: Feb 3, 2019
We see a lot of repurposed buildings today and there's not a better toolset for a facade facelift than the Facid tension frame system and the Serge Ferrari FT381 fabric mesh.
Schueco Germany just completed the Fit X project using the toolset to give a modern semi transparent look to an old tired facade. Mission accomplished!
The Facid 65 Perimeter & Joint profiles show that they can be rolled to achieve curved design forms and still provide perfect tension to the mesh. They also use the technique to hover channel letters over the surface of the mesh for another layer of dimension with identity.
