Siemens Head Quarters, Abu Dhabi
The architect for the Siemens Head Quarters model build wanted a very clean white model to show the intended design of the scheme. We were given a good budget and enough time to produced to a very high standard model. Time and budget always play a factor in the quality of the model build. Time is always required to perfect the details of the model.
The façade detail to the front elevation is not only a strong design feature but is shaped in a very unique way to give maximum shade to the interior as the sun moves across the sky. The architect wanted this featured detailed the same as the build with the correct panel thickness and at this scale the only option was to acid etch the façade panels from thin brass using our industry leading supplier in London allowing for much finer detail and thickness’ at the model scale. Each panel was etched in sets of 4 and then each panel carefully bent twice to mimic the design. Each set of 4 panels was then carefully fixed to a acrylic and brass subframe and sprayed white.
