Levolux designed, supplied and installed an aesthetically pleasing architectural façade solution as part of the £25 million redevelopment of Hackney Wick Station in East London.
Secret Fix Connection
Satin polyester powder coated finish
Infiniti Aluminium Box Fins
The architects working on Hackney Wick Station, Landolt Brown, took inspiration from the area’s industrial heritage when designing the new ticket hall. However, the brief for the Levolux solution was not limited to aesthetics. Screening the concrete shell was an important driver for the installation of the Infiniti system. It was also important to allow the passage of natural light into the building itself and underpasses that connect the platforms.
Levolux installed Infiniti aluminium 250mm x 50mm box fins at 170mm centres to create an interesting architectural feature. The station is covered with 638 vertical fins, in lengths that range from 2m to 7.1m. The patented secret-fix version of Levolux’s Infiniti fin system was chosen to avoid compromising the finish with visible fixings.
The grey-brown coloured fins, achieved with a smooth satin polyester powder coating, provide a visual cue to the weeping willows and reeds that are synonymous with the area close to Hackney Wick Station.
