The replacement linked walkway and stair to the Gildas Library Centre for The Roman Catholic Trust Corporation is a small but significant project for the school and JMC to design and document - construction completed within 6 weeks, the Christmas break ready for the 2020 term. A replacement stair and walkway linking two buildings cantilevers over and maintains the focus to the Chapel entry at the ground level. A project of reuse and reconnection required a sensitive approach to designing the new structure and balustrade system as we linked the two existing buildings, one of with heritage considerations.
The screens weathered steel powder-coat finish on aluminum to painted steel frames provides intersting filetered light patterns on the walkway at various times of the day. Accessiblity was paramount in the design concep as well as inclreasing the width of the stair to accommodate pedestrican movement to and from the Gildas Library.
