More about this product

Located in Adelaide, South Australia, St Mary’s College has developed a new building for its senior school, visual arts faculty, and PE facilities on the western edge of the city center. The architect, Esther Chew of Grieve Gillett Anderson selected Rodeca's polycarbonate translucent cladding to provide an attractive and light-transmissive external skin. Rodeca panels were also used internally for partitions. The external form utilizes zinc cladding that has been peeled back to reveal the translucent cladding to create the feeling of a 'floating corner' allowing the building to glow at night.
