Maximized Visual Transparency!

The Isabel - Centre for Performing Arts - Queen's University

The Isabel Bader Centre for Performing Arts at Queen’s University is world-renowned Oslo-based Snøhetta’s first Canadian project, designed in partnership with Ottawa-based architects N45.

The architectural intent was to maximize the view offered by the lake and required minimum visual interference whilst offering a high degree of thermal insulation. The corner supporting patch fitting system eliminated the need for holes in the glass and maximized the visual transparency of this beautiful wall.

Not only did Stella focus on its hardware design but engineering design also played a big part in the process as well. For more information about this project, check out its case study!
