Style South has won the prestigious AIS Contractors Gold Award for 2008. The award was received for the installation of two fabric wrapped Skyfold vertically rising operable walls to the main meeting area of Gensler’s new London Headquarters.
The installation was completed with Gensler as the lead designers and ISG Plc as the Main Contractor.
Panels were factory wrapped with Kvadrat Inox Glacier fabric wallcovering to match the surrounding walls and help create a startling yet functional backdrop for client presentations.
With the benefit of magnetic steel core panels, Gensler are able to showcase their ideas to their prospective clients by the simple use of magnets to adhere their ideas to the Skyfold walls.
The challenge of working directly with Skyfolds biggest Global client was not one that can be underestimated.
The installation and subsequent award help to confirm the giant strides Style in partnership with Skyfold are making in the UK, since the installation was completed orders have been received on two subsequent Gensler projects, Fidelity in Dublin and DTZ HQ in London, with many more in the pipeline.
