The Homerton College Dining Hall within the University of Cambridge had encountered many technical issues with the existing aluminium floor Grilles and the head of maintenance contacted Gap Architecture to help find the ultimate solution.
Gap visited the University to carry out an extensive survey and provided numerous Grille design options whilst utilising the traditional infrastructure.
The existing Grilles and channels had become increasingly damaged and distorted through persistent pedestrian traffic and the dining chairs and tables being dragged across the gratings and therefore GAP’s remit was to provide a more robust installation with greater efficiency and much improved aesthetics.
. . .
All Grilles were designed, manufactured and delivered to the campus within the critical timescale of the college’s summer holiday shutdown and maintenance period which was key to to the University re-opening the doors for the new term.
