Overview

Waterwall in Lobby, cortex iron, light, app. 10x3m

Goals

The goal was an emblematic waterwall with the name of the school in the entrance. Permanent water slowly moving over the wall. the chosen corten steel does rust. The rust builds a protective skin over the plates and a earthy colour and texture. The waterwall gives a unique identity for the visitor.

Process

we developed ideas and presented it to the landlord. Thereafter we designed the project in detail and guided the whole implementation process and detail planning as a total contractor.
