Deasy Road, Coventry
Project Completed: Deasy Road
This project looked to create a durable, weather resisting facade that would protect the building whilst also providing an aesthetically pleasing finish for the construction. The architects used a mixed material external facade that comprises brickwork and a Vitrabond cladding system. The design was completed with coloured panels around the front block to create a dappled design that contrasts beautifully with the primary copper metallic cladding.
