Curtain walling, door and window systems from Metal Technology have been integral in achieving the aesthetic and performance objectives for the redevelopment of the British Golf Museum at St. Andrew’s. Sitting at the heart of the home of golf, just 67 yards from the famous Old Course, Richard Murphy Architects’ design transformed the existing building into a modern architecturally award-winning structure. Bill Black, Director at Richard Murphy, said: “The design of the Museum is conceived as a simple pavilion in the landscape. The orientation of the café has been key to the design, maximising the views across the Old Course for visitors.”
The stunning views over the course are facilitated through Metal Technology System 4-20Hi+ thermally enhanced casement windows, combined with System 17 high rise, capped curtain walling. The design also features the System 5-20D Hi+ thermally enhanced door and the System 10 commercial door.
System 17 Curtain Walling not only provides structural integrity with high levels of thermal and weather performance but offers limitless flexibility in specification to meet the visual and performance requirements for any building.
In a design that featured expansive glazing, thermal performance was, in part, achieved through the use of window and door Systems 4-20Hi+ and 5-20D Hi+ from the Metal Technology THERMAL range, which incorporates into its systems bespoke thermal gaskets, cellular foams and polyamide thermal isolators to achieve impressively low U values without compromise on visual appeal.
The finished project was unveiled in time for the British Open of 2015.
