MAPLE TAKE PLANT SCREENING TO DIFFERENT LEVEL ON MIXED-USE HIGH-RISE

Perforated screens and louvres protect important machinery on Maple’s recent project in London’s Paddington Basin.


But unlike many of our projects, where rooftop screening is common, the North Wharf Gardens high-rise development required specialist protection and ventilation on levels 4, 15 and 19. As a result, the anodised screens and louvres form an integral part of the building façade – requiring close collaboration with architects White Ink and contractors McAleer & Rushe. 

The development features a 393-bed hotel for Premier Inn, 249 serviced apartments for Staycity and a sixth form college – all requiring specialist heating, ventilation and air-conditioning machinery.  

Maple’s perforated screens and louvres are designed to protect the plant from the elements, while maintaining airflow. However, as a visual element of the façade, they also have to look good. The aluminium screens and louvres are powder-coated in black and anodic bronze as a hard-wearing and cost-effective alternative to anodisation.

Maple's pluto louvre system is lightweight and easy to install and hides unsightly HVAC machinery

It’s lightweight and easy to install - an important consideration for rooftop locations and fixes directly to the building sub-frame. Viewed from the ground, it’s a sleek system of powder-coated or anodised aluminium louvres.
