Carpark buildings are a challenging typology. They tend to be centrally located, multi-storey buildings that need to be robust, functional and also positively contribute to the beauty and amenity of public space. The Harrison Carpark, responds elegantly to these challenges with the use of Technowood’s timber-look aluminium profiles on both the exterior and interior spaces. Technowood AluProfile combines the aesthetic appeal of natural wood with the durability, stability and weather resistance of aluminium. AluProfile is used in the Harrison Carpark as a batten to create a secure and ventilated facade, and as a panel cladding which adds a tactile warmth to the predominantly concrete structure.
Technowood AluProfile is a façade profile system where the profiles are laminated with natural wood veneers, combining wood aesthetics with metal resistance. This hybrid system produces long-lasting claddings, with the main advantage of extreme climatic resistance while being lighter than natural wood cladding. AluProfile acts as a barrier against flame and is not affected by worms, insects or fungi making it ideal for ventilated façades as well as decorative wall cladding.
