IMAGIC WEAVE® HE media elements as an interior column decoration:
Eye-catcher of the main entrance hall of Ali Bin Hamad Al Attiya Arena are two luminous columns that will attract the visitor´s attention not only for the Handball World Championship 2015. Architectural Wire Mesh and the media façade system IMAGIC WEAVE® HE by Haver & Boecker was used to enhance the two concrete columns.
The short visitor´s distance to the columns and the oval shape set special requirements to the used system. Accordingly, the extremely short and different viewing distances of the visitors had to be taken into account. Due to the excellent color mixing and the large beam angle, the IMAGIC WEAVE® HE system is perfectly suitable for this situation. The stainless steel wire mesh EGLA-TWIN 4212 Vario was used for the 2.50 m high column claddings. Special feature of this project was the seamless adaption of the wire mesh and the IMAGIC WEAVE® components to the oval shape of the columns.
Haver & Boecker eased this challenge by using stainless steel frames and vertically aligned LED profiles. To mount the usually horizontally installed LED profiles as invisible as possible, a specific framework was designed that exactly accommodates the LED profiles.
For the two column claddings Haver & Boecker supplied 58 m² IMAGIC WEAVE® as prefabricated frame elements. In addition to installation training, site support and commissioning for the IMAGIC WEAVE® media façade system, the local customer was supported by Haver & Boecker with on-site system trainings.
The Multipurpose Hall:
The Ali Bin Hamad Al Attiya arena of Al Sadd Sports Club, consisting of multi-purpose arena, gyms, restaurants and other facilities for medical care as well as for media and broadcasting facilities, was designed by the architect Al Khalil of James Cubitt & Partners.
In the new multipurpose sports hall, with a total capacity of 7,700 seats, sports events like handball, basketball, volleyball, badminton or hockey can take place.
