Full Metal Jacket

Using an intuitive sketch by Ilona Lénárd, the architect Kas Oosterhuis has created a very unusual façade. In a way it is more than a façade as it includes the roof also, fully wrapping the building in all its 3D glory. Made of 6 mm cold formed aluminium plates the pattern has been impressed upon the material using ship building techniques. Oosterhuis has gone to the extent of capturing the power of calligraphy itself, with the indentation in the metal being deeper where the artist’s line was heavier. The underlying idea is that each apartment has a unique pattern that defines their part of the façade while still unifying the building as a whole.
