A very uncommon mixture of Acrylic, Glass, Stainless Steel and Powder coated mild steel, provides this basement to ground floor staircase a touch of real elegance. Every single tread is constructed by chemically bonding 20mm thick Acrylic to 10mm toughened Glass, with a screen printed interlayer to hide the screw fixings to the stringers, and a non slip strips applied to the best surface. The central Balustrade panel is made from 26mm toughened and laminated Glass that completely aligns with a Glass panel that projects directly out of the wall to form the leading landing Balustrade.
The introduction of water to the Brunswick Centre by artist Susanna Heron was an integral part of the refurbishment in 2006 and a requirement of the 106 Agreement which was a situation of Organizing with Camden Council.
2003 – 2006 Aqua/duct Brunswick Centre. Artist Susanna Heron
The Operate of Art encourages population of the central space and creates a ‘sense of place’ amongst the flights of flats on either side. The central line of the space, punctuated by massive scale trees and cafe tables is marked by a series of stainless steel troughs channeling rapidly flowing water towards a massive pool. These invented objects have the characteristics of some thing utilitarian, industrial, out-of-doors and man-created they rest under their personal weight, their surfaces unrefined. The steel is folded to minimize the require for welds generating curves effortless to lean more than and a continuous structural ‘skin’ which offers it strength.
A rectangular pool is situated at the T-junction in between the Renoir Cinema and the central space. The container for the pool is low sufficient to encourage folks to sit collectively along the edges. This container is similarly angled and rests on the ground to trap the water in its frame. Circular lights set flush with the pool-base are illuminated at night appearing to float beneath the surface while by day the water draws in the sky.
This is a choreographic work, enabling men and women to sit and stroll about, introducing organic components of flowing water and reflected light by day and at evening.
Brunswick Centre Aqua/duct is the result of work by the artist Susanna Heron
in collaboration with Levitt Bernstein Associates Architects and Patrick Hodgkinson.
