项目简介:
来自建筑师的描述。2011年,Walters & Cohen赢得了该设计邀请竞赛,为伦敦美国学校设计了一个全新的艺术大楼。

从该半独立别墅的体量和占地面积看来,四层高的建筑被设计成类似于大型单一体量的建筑。 该项目的复杂性由于其在圣约翰林地保护区的一个突出角落地带的位置而增加,该方案的发展也吸引了众多关注。 我们与学校的董事会,区议员和地方政治家沟通,并在一个为期三天的公开展览中介绍了该项目概念设计,并广受欢迎。

研究并提供给规划师和总监的一系列外立面材料,包括了可回收使用玻璃,灰泥和大理石; 由于其优雅和传统的品质,石材被认为是最适合的建筑材料。 最终实现了建筑独特的外立面设计,利用石材其本身特性,以真正的现代设计手法表达。该建筑优雅而又轻盈和庄严而又沉重,独特而又现代,不出所料地占据着其在成熟的邻里之间平等的地位。

新建筑设计同样适应着内部空间的使用。一楼提供了展览空间,其他三层楼则提供了艺术,雕塑,陶瓷和摄影工作室。混凝土框架结构在所有楼层中提供了长跨度,无柱工作室空间,带来了来自从南部的日光,创造了一个灵活,宽敞和舒适的环境,学生可以在此可以自由自在的发挥他们的艺术细胞。

伦敦美国学校的新艺术大楼有一个独特的建筑外观设计,利用恒定质量的石材,以真正的当代设计手法表达。它是由设计团队和石匠之间密切合作而得到的产物,并充分利用到现代制造技术。

McConnell&Sons提供的技术和计算机驱动的制造过程中,每个石头的外观被切割成单独的一个图案单元,这意味着有更多的可能性,来设计一些创新和独特的学校。 所选择的图案在垂直空间上形成渐变,从底部20mm深处到建筑物顶部慢慢变平整。石匠的复杂的3D建模专长使得非线性的缩减成为可能,这也就意味着,对于建筑物的前三分之二,凹槽的深度将更快地朝窗户上方渐缩,并保持更大的形式。

From the architect. In 2011 Walters & Cohen won an invited competition to design a new arts building for the American School in London.
 
Taking its cue from the mass and footprint of the listed, semi-detached villas on the site adjacent, the four-storey building is designed to resemble a single large property. The complexity of the project is heightened by its location on a prominent corner plot in the St John’s Wood conservation area, where proposed developments attract a lot of attention. We liaised with the school’s distinguished board of governors, ward councillors and local politicians, and presented the concept design in a three-day public exhibition. The scheme was extremely well received.
 
A range of materials for the external facades were researched and presented to the planners and governors, including recycled glass, stucco flutes and marble; stone was considered the most appropriate material on account of its elegance and traditional qualities. The resulting facade is a unique piece of design that draws on the timeless quality of stone, expressed in a truly contemporary manner. Light plays on the facade, flattening and disguising the flute pattern one minute, only to boldly express it in the next. The building has both an elegant lightness and a weight and gravitas, unique and contemporary yet effortlessly taking its place as an equal among its more mature neighbours.
 
The new building’s sculptural quality is fitting to the work that goes on inside. The ground floor provides exhibition space, with art, sculpture, ceramics and photography studios on the other three floors. An elegant concrete frame provides long span, column-free studio space at all levels, bringing in daylight from the north and south and creating a flexible, spacious and comfortable environment in which pupils can develop their art.
 
Product Description.
cBespoke stone facade: S McConnell & Sons with Stone Cladding International Limited
 
The facade of the new art building at the American School in London is a unique piece of design that draws on the timeless quality of stone, expressed in a truly contemporary manner. It is the product of close collaboration between the design team and the stonemason and thoroughly embraces what modern manufacturing techniques can offer.
 
The stonemason S. McConnell & Sons’ skills and computer-driven manufacturing processes allowed each stone of the facade to be cut to an individual pattern, which meant there were more possibilities to design something innovative and unique to the School. The chosen motif creates a gradual fade on the vertical flutes, from 20mm deep at the base to a flat-faced stone at the head of the building. The complex 3D-modelling expertise of the stonemason made a non-linear reduction possible, meaning that the depth of the flute remains greater for the first two thirds of the building before tapering more quickly above the head of the windows.
