Bespoke graphic working of the glazed partitions formed part of the interior conservation philosophy by acclaimed architects Page Park, who were awarded the project to breath new energy into St. Cecilia's Hall - part of University of Edinburgh's concert hall and music museum
Indeglås were invited by Eilidh Henderson of Page Park to be involved from the very outset of the design development of the project and contributed to the specification and interface detailing of the internal glazed screens.
The flexibility of DEKO FG enabled the same perimeter detailing throughout the extensive range of fire-rated and bespoke glass screens, which were templated to fit perfectly within existing stone archways.
The attention to detail and collaborative approach between the design team, main contractor Interserve and glazed screen specialists resulted in architectural detailing as beautiful as the musical instruments the building showcases.
The project has been recognised by the following selected awards (linked):
This is a jewel box, a box within a box. The architectural idea was to try and let this building sing again and all instruments are displayed in the position they would be played in which lends a real dynamism to the exhibits" "We had a lot of fun playing with the motif and thinking about how we could add this layer of embellishment to the interior as well"
