Scope

The main scope for this project was to create a façade / sunscreen to match other Porsche centres around Australia. Porsche are very protective of their brand identity and hence the final finish and design were closely monitored.

The facade was designed to provide protection from the harsh Australian climate for the vehicles situated in the external showroom. The screens still allow the natural daylight to flow through, ensuring an ideal environment for highlighting the vehicles’ assets.

 

Progression

Locker Group perforated metal was the ideal solution. The panels were able to be provided quickly, as the designers chose one of Locker Groups large range of standard patterns. The large panels, each manufactured with an inbuilt framing border, provide a modern look to the dealership. Locker Group worked closely with Exel – Links throughout construction; providing samples and installation advice to make sure the client was happy with the final concept.

 

Outcome

The perforated metal was used to emphasise the façade of Porsche Brighton’s new showroom, while also acting as a sunscreen to protect the inhabitants from the sun’s glare. The result is a clean and crisp finish, in line with premium branding position of this prestige vehicle manufacturer.

Locker Group perforated patterns allow air to flow through, while still ensuring a suitable sunshade is provided. Locker Group’s perforated metal can also be used for balustrades, feature facades or anywhere airflow is required.
