Te Oro - Glen Innes Music and Arts Centre

Auckland, New Zealand

The concept for the Te Oro facility envisioned the building being as a grove of trees under which communities gathered and sheltered to commune, share knowledge and be culturally and creatively productive. From this came Te Oro’s signature roof form, a floang geometrised ‘leaf canopy’ atop a series of ‘timber trunks’.

A certified smoke control and natural ventilation system was required to blend in seamlessly, a combination of form and function that was in keeping with the designers concept. Colt smoke and fire curtains are largely invisible until deployed and allow the designers to utilise large spaces without the need for permanent fire walls. The architecturally pleasant and robust glazed Coltlite louvres are a feature in the entranceway.

Performance tested to EN 12208. The CLS Overlapping Ventilator has a non-thermally broken extruded aluminium outer frame with frameless controllable (single glazed) overlapping glass louvres. Overall frame depth 47mm, frame face width 40mm.
