To generate appeal while splitting up extended expanses, architects can choose to employ walled and roof panel systems along exterior surfaces or combine distinct wall panels. Rather than using a single metal panel which runs along the whole length of the wall, you can instead combine varying profiles to produce contrast while remaining true to your core design. This also helps to give visual interest while not appearing too busy.
When you apply wood, brick or stone to an exterior to accent specific walls, metallic panels may be utilized to highlight them. This is a layered design method that will generate visual interest while also merging new and old, which complements the structure’s history while also adding a contemporary touch.
For example, if you’re working with a vintage building in a neighborhood which is historic, the architect can apply metal as the accent. By doing so, it won’t overpower the building’s historic look, but the little metal pops will definitely modernize it.
To create a nice visual punch with personality, your architect can select metallic panels from a single color family. An example of this would be metal panels that use a combination of dark, light and medium blue and then displaying these panels in a manner which is structured or random to create an ombre or mosaic effect. This effect will work wonderfully if you use multiple hues from a single color group, as it will generate a monochromatic effect.
One of the hallmarks of metal cladding is the capacity to generate nearly limitless perforation densities, hole sizes and patterns. Aside from decorative purposes, it can also serve more practical uses such as providing ventilation, shading and privacy. For example, corrugated perforated copper has been used to produce decorative walled art screens for sidewalks. They extend around architectural structures which offer the perfect combination of visibility, privacy and shade during workdays while enabling the building to glow after dark.
There are so many things that can be done with metallic panels thanks to their varying elements. When more architects begin to apply it in their projects, this material may be employed in numerous creative ways, and the only limits is their imagination.
Using wooden grain finish as the exterior accent will definitely produce texture and visual interest. This is because combining metal with wood grain finish that is realistic will provide higher durability and low maintenance, especially when using woods such as dark oak or bamboo. This design structure offers the best of both worlds. You’ll get the natural and earthly look of wood combined with the protection and durability that metal offers. When viewed from afar, it will be challenging to tell the difference between authentic wood from the metallic panels that use a wooden grain finish.
