Textural Facade Design
Battens were chosen to be 42mm wide with spaces of the same width. This creates a vertical iteration of battens with room for shadowing and light to disperse throughout the pieces of timber. The battens are also 42mm in depth, further adding to the symmetry. Some patches have battens spaced very close together to help create interest in the design.
The walls that the battens are installed onto are not long and straight, but are divided into sections. Some of these sections jut out on an angle and windows are placed into the gap that’s created. Overall, the combination of these features creates an intriguing facade design that appeals to the community.
