“A roof study investigating the possibilities for a core ten V-shaped beam structure with integrated skylight glazing and drainage"
Full project description:
A studio investigation examining the possibilities for an integrated roof solution, which combines the various requirements of structure, daylight, shading, waterproofing and drainage. Core ten steel is considered because of its unique surface characteristics and warm aesthetic, which in many ways produces an effect not dissimilar to timber beams, albeit with a superior structural performance.
